Truman Capote´s boyhood Christmas memoir rereleased in a beautiful new package, which includes a CD with the audio version of the text. The classic story of Truman Capote´s childhood Christmas ritual is more endearing than ever in this newly redesigned package. In celebration of A Christmas Memory´s enduring appeal, this repackaged edition retains Beth Peck´s evocative watercolors and an audio CD narration by the venerable Celeste Holm (originator of the Ado Annie role in the 1943 Broadway hit ´´Oklahoma!´´ and an Academy Award-winning actress). Originally published in 1956, this is the story from Capote´s childhood of lovingly making fruitcakes from scratch at Christmas-time with his elderly cousin, and has stood the test of time to become known as an American holiday classic. In its new size, it´s perfect for reading alone or reading aloud, or following along while listening to the audio version.
