A Christmas Memory | Truman Capote

Pickpick

I read this with my book group. I had no idea it was such a classic! Every time I mention it now it seems like it‘s someones favorite Christmas story. It was a quick read, makes you nostalgic and long for your own holiday traditions from your youth 🥮🎄🪁

@TheAromaofBooks this was my #doublespin pick for December

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 3w

I need to put this short story in my regular reading rotation around Christmas. Capote engages all the senses as a young boy and his grandmother, best friends, make fruitcake and other Christmas preparations. This book has all the cosy feelings and a little melancholy too-which honestly can be part of Christmas as one grows older, with less wide-eyed innocence.

plemmdog There‘s an actor in Nashville who used to recite the whole thing from memory every Christmas. It was amazing. He had a bit role on the TV show Nashville 4w
SteveWJones I have a signed copy of this book, and you‘ve reminded me that I need to be sure I know where it is in my house. 😂 2w

“Possibly we doze; but the beginnings of dawn splash us like cold water; we‘re up, wild-eyed and wandering while we wait for others to waken. Quite deliberately my friend drops a kettle on the kitchen floor. I tap dance in front of closed doors. One by one the household emerges, looking as though they‘d like to kill us both, but it‘s Christmas so they can‘t.” #adventathon

These stories are sad and moving, filed with nostalgia and edginess. There‘s a looming sense of violence and peril that leaves every sentence a little unsettling. I loved the cross generational relationships and the scene setting of rural Alabama was very evocative.

Today was the first day in a long long long long that I‘ve left the house for work… I chose a pretty chilly day to do it! Back reading on my journeys felt nice ( everything else - not so!)

Cathythoughts I miss reading on buses & trains .. sounds good 2mo
Mitch @Cathythoughts I have too. Travelling with my nose in a book was a pure joy for me. Feels like a lifetime ago. 2mo
BiblioLitten @Cathythoughts Me too! I love reading on buses and trains💜 2mo

Starting books on my ‘festive pile‘ today. I got this book as a secret Santa from IRL Bookclub last year and have had it queued up to read of a while! 🎉

The Thanksgiving Visitor | Truman Capote

This is another sweet little holiday story about Buddy‘s (Truman‘s) childhood growing up in Alabama with Miss Sook and their eccentric little family. I love reading about his childhood and would highly recommend the fiction series Tru & Nelle, which are also perfect to read this time of year. 4⭐️
