The Ferrari in the bedroom by Jean Shepherd ( Book )
11 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jean Shepherd was one of America's favorite humorists, his most notable achievement being the creation of the indefatigable Ralphie Parker and his quest for a BB gun in the holiday classic A Christmas Story. But he was so much more, a comic Garrison Keillor'like figure whose unique voice transcended the airwaves and affected a whole generation of nostalgic Americans. The Ferrari in the Bedroom is Shepherd's wry, affectionate look at the hang-ups and delusions of Americans in the 1970s. From his sardonic assessment of fads such as the nostalgia craze ("Thinking that the old days were good is a terrible sickness. Everything was just as bad then as it is now.") to a modest proposal for the foundation of S.P.L.A.T. (The Society for the Prevention of the Leaving of Animal Turds), Jean Shepherd provides a generous measure of his special brand of wise and warm humor as an antidote for some of America's more ridiculous obsessions

A Christmas story by Jean Shepherd ( Recording )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Christmas story gathers together in one hilarious volume the gems of autobiographical humor that Jean Shepherd drew upon to create this enduring film. Here is young Ralphie Parker's shocking discovery that his decoder ring is really a device to promote Ovaltine; his mother and father's pitched battle over the fate of a lascivious leg lamp and, most crucially, Ralphie's unstoppable campaign to get Santa or anyone else to give him a Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle. Who cares that the whole adult world is telling him, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid." The pieces that comprise A Christmas story coalesce in a magical fashion to become an irresistible piece of Americana

Ralphie is a 9-year-old who wants only one thing for Christmas - an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model BB rifle with a compass in the stock. Between his parents, his teacher, and even Santa Claus all Ralphie hears is "No, you'll shoot your eye out." By this time, Ralphie has had enough of that. When Scut Farkus, the schoolyard bully and his sidekick Grover Dill start in on Ralphie while he's on his way home from school that day, Ralphie knocks Grover to the ground, beats Scut's face bloody, and then pounds Scut's head on the snow-covered ground several times. Ralphie thinks he'll never get the BB gun for Christmas now. And all of the other kids are going to be getting what they want for Christmas
