First published in 1956, this much sought-after autobiographical recollection of Truman Capote's rural Alabama boyhood, has become a modern-day classic. We are proud to be reprinting this warm and delicately illustrated edition of A Christmas Memory, "a tiny gem of a holiday story"--School Library Journal, starred review.
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 between two innocent souls--one young and one old--and the memories they share of beloved holiday rituals.
