Christmas and More ala Truman Capote by da-AL

Truman Capote was a genius writer and spoken word performer. He’s best known for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Yes, the movie version that starred the lovely Audrey Hepburn but that horribly mangled Capote’s marvelous novella.

Here Capote reads aloud his heartbreakingly sweet and profound autobiographical “A Christmas Memory”…

Here, along with his “Among the Paths to Eden,” is him reading the real version of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”…

Have you read any of Truman Capote’s stories?

  1. Interesting timing, Da’al. Jean and I just finished reading Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and a couple of other short stories in the same paperback. Liked the other stories even better than Breakfast. He’s a fine writer. Fascinating and believable characters. A lot of heart in some of those short stories. Very poignant.

  2. Such a nice author and fascinating personnage. Did you know his nickname was Bulldog? Of course, I saw the movie Breakfast at Thiffany’s but I have not yet read the book. I really enjoyed In Cold Blood and read two of his short stories though. Happy 2019!
