really liked it
Read in December, 2009

I saw a whole new side of Truman Capote after reading this story. Before this, like a lot of people, I only knew him from reading "In Cold Blood". The soul of this story is tender and beautiful and after reading it I am in love with his writing. It came in a book of the author's short stories and the way this man uses words, the way he puts common words together, they form wonderful word pictures. I'm convinced that words can be "eye candy" and I can't wait to get more of it. I can't stop reading the stories but I don't want them to be done either. The only thing left for me is to reread them, over and over.

George Very well said. I'll look into this collection. And let me recommend Breakfast at Tiffany's. Holly Golightly will always be one of my favorite fictional characters. Of course, it didn't hurt her image with me to be played, in the movie of the same name, by Audrey Hepburn. george

Judy I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've watched Breakfast At Tiffany's. The book of stories I have, cleverly titled "The Complete Stories of Truman Capote". I think you'll want to read them all: I do.
