Product Description

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. A Christmas Memory is the classic memoir of Truman Capote's childhood in rural Alabama. Until he was ten years old, Capote lived with distant relatives. This book is an autobiographical story of those years and his frank and fond memories of one of his cousins, Miss Sook Faulk. The text is illustrated with full color illustrations that add greatly to the story without distracting from Capote's poignant prose. Includes a CD of the book narrated by Celeste Holm
