it was amazing

What's so beautiful about this little book is its radiant nostalgia. Most well-read people know what Truman Capote was like as an adult. Jaded, cynical, sarcastic, self-serving... Here we meet lonely little boy that was in him all along.

Lyn There's another one with the same characters, Buddy and Miss Sook, who are based on Capote and an elderly relative. You know how he was shuttled around among relatives as a little boy. The other book is called The Thanksgiving Visitor. I have to scan it again before I review it, but I liked it as well. I understand lots of families have a tradition of reading these books aloud during the holidays. So Alabama!

Linda who would have thought the two images were one and the same? a good reflection and well written - thanks.
