Author James Howard Kunstler is best-known for his books and novels warning about peak oil, economic collapse and the failures of suburbia. But this holiday season he's taking a short break from analyzing the converging catastrophes of the 21st Century to share a Christmas parable with his readers. "A Christmas Orphan," by James Howard Kunstler, is a new novella about a big city boy who runs away from home to small town Vermont on Christmas Eve.
