Book Overview

Available for the first time in a single volume are the three holiday stories that Truman Capote regarded as among his greatest works of short fiction. Two of these childhood memoirs - A Christmas Memory and The Thanksgiving Visitor - center on the author's early years with a family of distant relatives in rural Alabama. Both pay loving tribute to an eccentric old-maid cousin, Miss Sook Faulk, who became his best friend. In A Christmas Memory, Miss Sook, Buddy (the narrator), and their dog, Queenie, celebrate the yuletide in a hilariously tipsy state. In the poignant reminiscence One Christmas, six-year-old Buddy journeys to New Orleans for a reunion with his estranged father that shatters many illusions. And in The Thanksgiving Visitor, Miss Sook invites the school bully, Odd Henderson - called by Buddy the meanest human creature in my experience - to Thanksgiving dinner.
