We read this one aloud every Christmas. I was fortunate enough to be in the audience at Van Meter Auditorium as Mr. Capote read this memoir. "It's fruitcake weather!" Put something sweet to bake in the oven and curl up by the fire with a box of tissues. Read this book aloud and sample each delicious sentence slowly. It's all there: goodness and meanness, mystery, yearning and so much love. Don't forget to take your goodies out of the oven and get some milk to go with whatever you baked. Bet it's not as good as Sook's fruitcake. No matter. This book will satisfy.
