  1. I was unaware of this book, but was looking for an interesting holiday read I chose this one because I knew Truman Capote to be a wonderful author I wasn t disappointed These reportedly autobiographical stories take place in rural depression era Alabama They are beautifully written with two basic characters, Buddy a young boy and Miss Sook, a sixty something tear old spinster cousin believed to be feeble minded who is his best friend and care taker The stories are heart warming and the character [...]


  2. Reflections on a dysfunctional and disturbing childhood His redemption came in the unlikely person of Miss Sook.Truman Capote surely had a genius for capturing human and animal nature and Miss Sook, his best friend, obviously had a tremendous impact on his young, impressionable years that lasted throughout his life She remains with the reader as a simple soul, someone whom everyone has encountered, known, and loved in life Wish there were memoirs of his childhood with Miss Sook and her dog Queen [...]


  3. A Christmas Memory is a collection of three short stories written by Truman Capote I ve previously read In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany s by Truman Capote This collection is unlike anything I ve read by him before It s a tender recollection of memories of his time as a youth living with elderly cousins in rural Alabama.Truman s parents divorced when he was a very young child and had a bitter custody battle over him This led to him being raised by cousins, three elderly spinsters and a bac [...]


  4. A Christmas Memory is the only one I have read out of this collection I think it is Capote s perfect short story My family has been reading it every Xmas eve for 20 years and watching the movie with Geraldine Page It s not a feel good story it s simply life and the love between a young boy Capote and his cousin, who is quite child like even though she is probably in her 70s But as child to child, they are having the time of their lives with little money and making the most with what they do have [...]


  5. This book is a replacement for one that got ruined in a flood I m so grateful I was able to find a copy These three stories by Truman Capote are ones he considered his finest work His relationship with an elderly aunt is endearing and enduring in the years he spent living with several of his elderly relatives as a child The language is exquisite, so descriptive and filled with sensory details that one can almost taste the delectable dishes, smell the rich aromas of pine trees and cinnamon, and h [...]


  6. I never expected such a short book of a few short stories to have such impact I went from laughter to melancholy to tears and then back to laughter I have never read any of Mr Capote s other books, but plan to remedy that in the near future.


  7. I found this a difficult read, and I am not sure exactly why Maybe the vocabulary I was constantly looking up words in the dictionary, also the fact that it seemed to me like the same story was being retold.Not avery pleasant read for me, but I kept going because I know Truman Capote to be an important American writer and I wanted to finish at least this short book he wrote.
