A CHRISTMAS MEMORY BY TRUMAN CAPOTE
... a novel gift
Originally published in Mademoiselle magazine in December 1956, Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory” is a semi-autobiographical short story of a seven-year old “Buddy”, recounting a particularly beautiful Christmas in 1930’s rural Alabama, where he - with his cousin Sook - forage for pecans and moonshine to bake fruitcakes from scratch and gift them to strangers. Create your own Christmas ritual when you host a reading for your dearly overfed guests in the best Philip Seymour Hoffman-does-Capote quake you can muster. Send this with a handwritten note inside instead of a cheesy Christmas card. 128 pages. 7.5” x 5”.
Pair with other joyous offerings for the stocking.
