A Christmas Memory
Originally published in 1956, this poignant, heart-felt, modern day classic gently captures Mr. Capote’s richly detailed memories of his Depression-era, rural Alabama boyhood with his best friend – an eccentric, 60-something distant cousin with whom he baked fruitcakes each Christmas. The affecting simplicity of Truman Capote’s A Christmas Memory speaks even louder today, making us realize just how chaotic our lives can be if we don’t hold on to some tether of family, love and tradition.
