Truman Capote's boyhood Christmas memoir, rereleased with a beautiful new packaging.
The classic story of Truman Capote's childhood Christmas ritual is more endearing than ever in this newly redesigned package.
In celebration of A Christmas Memory's enduring appeal, this repackaged edition retains Beth Peck's evocative watercolors and Capote's original text. First published in 1956, this is the story from Capote's childhood of lovingly making fruitcakes from scratch at Christmas-time with his elderly cousin, and has stood the test of time to become known as an American holiday classic.
A Christmas Memory
I read this every Christmas Eve on our way to family Christmas. And every Christmas I cry as I read, which my husband says makes it for him. I again am overwhelmed with sadness, sweetness and gratitude at the things that matter in life, all told in a masterful way. A favorite Christmas ritual.
