Review by

I'm working through this at the moment. Capote provides lovely, startling descriptions of life in the American South in the 40s that jump out at me. Some of the stories, like "Miriam", are creepy ghost stories that could be X-Files episodes. Others leave me cold.

Review by

The sentimental "A Christmas Memory" is a lovely semi-autobiographical Christmas tale featuring Buddy (Capote), 'my friend' ('Miss Sook') and Queenie (terrier), as do several more of the later stories, including the final 'One Christmas'. They capture a time and an emotion beautifully.I have read these over a long period of time, so only the last stories are memorable.
