A Beloved Christmas Story
A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote is a bittersweet story based on his childhood and relationship with his beloved cousin Sook.
The story sweeps the reader away into the Depression Era Christmas season as seen through his eyes as a child.
The delight of "Fruitcake Season!" The anticipation of a time for celebration when simple tokens of love were considered a luxury. Finally, the sad truth of separation from family and loved ones.
Capote was a brilliant writer. His words jump off the page and grasp readers right into his clutch, so as to see everything just as he did.
A Christmas Memory is a testimony to his true courage and heart. It is a wonderful Christmas story for children and adults.

I had read only one of the three Capote stories in this little volume, but I knew I wanted to share it with my adult children who remembered the Christmas it was our read-aloud selection. I bought three copies. All three of the stories are written with truthfulness without self-pity which might have made them maudlin.
