Himmelfarb, January 12, 2010 (view all comments by Himmelfarb)
I encountered the work of Truman Capote when I was 14 years old and from the first short story I read - "Miriam" - I was overwhelmed, moved to tears and hooked forever. Since then (more than 30 years ago) I've read everything he ever wrote and almost all of his work is great. But his stories stand out. You can reread and reread them forever and be still enthusiastic. His prose is of rare beauty and some of his stories are so sad I still cry my eyes out. Every year around Christmas time I read "A Christmas Memoir" and it still brings a lump to my throat. Not a year goes by that I'm not mourning the early loss of this writing genius. But as long as his writings are with us, he will not be forgotten and cherished forever!

I've read most of Truman Capote's works, so I was excited to find this collection of short stories, as short fiction has been my favorite form of writing to explore lately. The stories in this book appear in chronological order, and it's interesting to see how Capote's writing improved over the decades. There were a couple of early stories I struggled with, where the dense 15 page spaces felt like 30; but then there were the gems-- the stories that moved so quickly and said so much, so clearly. I've always felt that Capote was a genuine storyteller, and in this collection, the gems far outnumber the rocks.
