47 Minutes is a thin book, but deep; short, but memorable. Take the time to savor its words and surreal images and its powerful, timely message for our rushed and stuffed society: 'tis, indeed, the gift to be simple. - John de Graaf, co-author, Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic.

But few of those fans know that Capra’s film was based on a short story by author Philip Van Doren Stern, which came to Stern in a dream one night. Unable at first to find a publisher for his evocative tale about a man named George Pratt who ponders suicide until he receives an opportunity to see what the world would be like without him, Stern ultimately published the story in a small pamphlet and sent it out as his 1943 Christmas card.

DEATH ON CHRISTMAS EVE by Stanley Ellin. From the Boerum house to Al Sharp’s Bar and Grill was only a few minutes’ walk, and I made it in good time, grateful for the sting of the clear winter air in my face. Al was alone behind the bar, busily polishing glasses, and when he saw me enter he greeted me cheerfully. Merry Christmas, counsellor, he said. Same to you, I said, and watched him place a comfortable-looking bottle and a pair of glasses on the bar. You’re regular as the seasons, counsellor, said Al, pouring out two stiff ones.

With overtones of "A Christmas Carol" and "It's a Wonderful Life," this small, satisfying book from veteran author Van Doren answers to the paradoxical angst we all feel during the holidays. Van Doren quickly establishes a clear voice as he recounts a Christmas Eve adventure that wouldn't be out of place in Alice's Wonderland. Employing his hometown landscape and universal themes of too-much-work/too-little-time, the story sleds along an ever-surprising slope, accelerating steadily -- with the occasional pause for breath -- to a conclusion that is both simple and profound. A quick read, the book is a perfect gift and a primer for the ages.

Too busy to read this at Christmas time, I found 47 Minutes to be a delightful read on a summer afternoon. Weird, engaging and fun, Van Doren's narrative is simultaneously disjointed and captivating, a carnival ride with an afterglow. The perfect gift for the man who has everything.
