Truman Capote’s short story was originally published in Mademoiselle magazine in 1956. PTP Radio Cavalcade has adapted it for our annual holiday presentation. Largely autobiographical, Capote’s 7-year-old narrator recounts memories of Christmas activities involving himself and an elderly cousin and details country life and friendship as well as loneliness and loss.
