Truman Capote's boyhood Christmas memoir, rereleased with a beautiful new packaging and a CD. 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.
