    Rating 5 perfect starsI am second to none in my admiration for Truman Capote s major work, In Cold Blood, but it isn t a feel good read or an uplifting one This story is both.It is perfectly constructed It leads the reader from room to room, place to place, experience to memory, without ever breaking the literary fourth wall Yes, it s a memory, in French this form would be called a r cit but it s never Narrated By A Future Self Seldom does a wide ranging reader come across so perfect an ex Rating 5 perfect starsI am second to none in my admiration for Truman Capote s major work, In Cold Blood, but it isn t a feel good read or an uplifting one This story is both.It is perfectly constructed It leads the reader from room to room, place to place, experience to memory, without ever breaking the literary fourth wall Yes, it s a memory, in French this form would be called a r cit but it s never Narrated By A Future Self Seldom does a wide ranging reader come across so perfect an example of a memory told as a story as ordinarily authors use this technique in order to comment on either the nature of or the facts within a memory.Capote tells his adult readers what happened on one happy day and leaves them to it.There is always an element of summary in any memory, in any r cit brief, streamlined novelish things that they are here it is the outgrowth of listening to the man Capote s story instead of Capote Making A Point.This is a favorite reading experience for me and has stood well the cruel test of time when periodically re read If this is your first reading of it, I am glad for you that you have found your way here I hope to see you in our company again soon

    This book of two short stories ranks up there with Alice s Restaurant, A Child s Christmas in Wales, and A Christmas Story It is both warm and fuzzy but with import I d recommend it for the seasons coming up it evokes a lot of my own memories.

    If I had to choose one piece of literature to be my all time favorite, it would be Truman Capote s, A Christmas Memory I love The Thanksgiving Visitor as well, but next to A Christmas Memory, which is perfection, it is merely fantastically wonderful.

    Despite a very sad childhood, Truman had one shining star His elderly cousin Sooke navigated him through a tough patch, teaching him right from wrong, and good from evil.When he was dumped in rural Alabama by parents who did not want to be responsible in raising him, this bright, sensitive, lonely boy temporarily found an anchor in Sooke.Bullied abusively by many, but in particular by a near do well named Odd, he dreaded going to school Told by Odd that he was beating him to toughen him up , Despite a very sad childhood, Truman had one shining star His elderly cousin Sooke navigated him through a tough patch, teaching him right from wrong, and good from evil.When he was dumped in rural Alabama by parents who did not want to be responsible in raising him, this bright, sensitive, lonely boy temporarily found an anchor in Sooke.Bullied abusively by many, but in particular by a near do well named Odd, he dreaded going to school Told by Odd that he was beating him to toughen him up , Truman truly never did toughen up Both as a child and an adult, Truman was an incredibly insecure person.In this story, when he confesses to Sooke that he fears Odd, she explains that Odd and his family are poorer than most, that his father is not exactly a great man, and that his mother does the best she can Sooke tells Truman he must invite Odd to the family Thanksgiving dinner Sooke paves the way, and Thanksgiving day finds Odd in Truman s company Jealous beyond comprehension, Truman seethes when Odd is given attention by family members.The opportunity for revenge strikes when Truman observes Odd stealing Sookes one and only valuable item an old cameo.Deliberately embarrassing Odd, Truman waits for the opportunity to announce to those at the table that Odd is a thief Sooke becomes incredibly angry at Truman, berating him and noting that it is never right to deliberately exhibit cruelty Sadly, in the pages of the book Truman seems to understand this lesson If real life, this adage is not carried through.Five stars for this well written, poignant tale

    Confession I was supposed to read these when I was working on my thesis I did start them and really liked them, but I stopped reading after a few pages once I figured out they weren t going to relate to my topic because, well, I had deadlines Anyway, I figured it was time to actually get around to finishing them, and I m glad I did because they were excellent They re superb examples of Capote s short fiction, which I think is highly underrated and is among his best work They re wry, witty, Confession I was supposed to read these when I was working on my thesis I did start them and really liked them, but I stopped reading after a few pages once I figured out they weren t going to relate to my topic because, well, I had deadlines Anyway, I figured it was time to actually get around to finishing them, and I m glad I did because they were excellent They re superb examples of Capote s short fiction, which I think is highly underrated and is among his best work They re wry, witty, astute, hilarious, and poignant and well worth a read Great holiday stories

    Truman Capote lived with some distant, elderly relatives in Alabama until he was 10 years old and was sent away to a military boarding school He was especially fond of his cousin Miss Sook, who was quite childlike herself This books recounts two tales from Capote s childhood Both are rather somber affairs, the Christmas storyso than the Thanksgiving one Don t expect to feel uplifted at the end.

    They weren t awful to read the christmas stories both ended very sadly, and the Thanksgiving story was very anti climatic, I was expecting something to happen and nothing ever did So so Good for a quick read.
