Ten top fictional feasts for Christmas

Kate Young is the author of The Little Library Cookbook. At the Guardian she tagged ten fictional feasts for Christmas, including:
Mince pies
Behind the Scenes at the Museum, Kate Atkinson

Faced with an unexpected family tragedy, Ruby Lennox and her sister spend one memorable Christmas home alone, watching hours of TV, with tinned food and packets of mince pies to sustain them. It’s a much more sombre holiday than most of the others here, but one that has stayed with me long after I closed the book.
Read about another entry on the list.

Behind the Scenes at the Museum is among Miranda Doyle's ten top books about lies, Jenny Eclair's six best books, and Ester Bloom's top fifteen books everyone should read before having kids.
