The Complete Stories of Truman Capote (Vintage International)

The Complete Stories of Truman Capote - Truman Capote, Reynolds Price I've just decided to pull this back out. I bought this book after seeing a movie based on Capote's memoirs and/or short stories about his childhood...I forget the details, but it was lovely. So much of his fame dwelt on the gruesome and urbane--I think it's easy to forget that he was raised in the same slow South as Harper Lee's Scout. His writing here often reflects that.
