A holiday classic from "one of the greatest writers and most fascinating society figures in American history" ( Vanity Fair )! First published in 1956, this much sought-after autobiographical recollection from Truman Capote ( In Cold Blood ; Breakfast at Tiffany's ) about his rural Alabama boyhood is a perfect gift for Capote's fans young and old. Seven-year-old Buddy inaugurates the Christmas season by crying out to his cousin, Miss Sook Falk: "It's fruitcake weather!" Thus begins an unforgettable portrait of an odd but enduring friendship and the memories the two friends share of beloved holiday rituals. A Christmas Memory has been described as "[a] gem of a holiday story" ( School Library Journal , starred review), and this warm and delicately illustrated edition is one you'll want to add to any Christmas or Capote collection.
