First published in 1956, this much sought-after autobiographical recollection from Capote about his rural Alabama boyhood is a perfect gift for fans young and old, a "gem of a holiday story." (School Library Journal, starred review). 

Seven-year-old Buddy inaugurates the Christmas season by crying out to his cousin, Miss Sook Falk: "It's fruitcake weather!" Thus begins an unforgettable portrait of an odd but enduring friendship and the memories the two friends share of beloved holiday rituals. 

Reader Thomas Lynch is an actor and longtime resident of the Elmwood.
