In this reinvention of the classic holiday carol "The 12 Days of Christmas," five golden rings become five Nana hugs, eight maids a-milking become eight mugs of cocoa, and much more, as a family comes together to celebrate the holidays.
In the first hour of Christmas Santa left for me…a kitten underneath the Christmas tree!
"The novel is a quiet but strong tour de force."~Marly Swick, author of Evening News: A Novel
1992. Tyler Manning— high school teacher, part-time farmer, bachelor of 38—is planning his first day of summer vacation when a strange car approaches his Kansas farmhouse. By the time the battered Ford departs, Tyler is holding a three-week-old infant.
KU-Phoria: A collection of stories about KU traditions, KU Info and KU basketball by Curtis Marsh
In his fourth decade of service to the University of Kansas, Curtis Marsh has developed an obsessive love for his school. As an undergrad, he led one of the first organized camping groups for KU basketball games and a nationally prominent student entrepreneurship club. In his early career at KU, he helped develop a technology business incubator which has become KU Innovation Park. He also co-founded the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute before serving as Director of KU Info for 15 years. He was the first and only director of the DeBruce Center: the shrine for the original rules of basketball. He now serves as a director of development at KU Endowment. The common thread through all these activities is his love for KU and his desire to share that love with the entire Jayhawk Nation.
Praise for KU-phoria

—Lisa Pinamonti Kress, Director of KU Admissions
"KU-phoria celebrates the rich history and traditions of KU. The depth and breadth of Curtis Marsh's knowledge of KU comes alive in a way that will resonate in the heart of every Jayhawk."
—Heath Peterson, President, KU Alumni Association
The Jayhawk, the University of Kansas's legendary and unique mascot, has represented the university for more than one hundred years and is recognizable around the world.
