Boohoohoo2 ,

The best!

This is by far the best Christmas book out there. I love the way Capote writes... it takes me back to my Southern childhood. I only wish that the original movie, A Christmas Memory staring Geraldine Page , could be re released this time of year. By far my favorite Christmas book!
