When Truman Capote died in 1984, just before his sixtieth birthday, his life had been in a shambles for years.
He had become a grotesque to the younger generation, a terrible example for their elders, who could remember the great talent of the young Capote and comprehend the tragedy of its destruction.
Norman Mailer's judgment that Capote was the most perfect writer of their generation--"he writes the best sentences word for word, rhythm upon rhythm"--seems true and just.
Capote decided upon his literary vocation in early childhood and never looked back.
Though Capote never wrote an autobiography, parts of his childhood are quite faithfully recorded in his novel The Grass Harp and his stories "A Christmas Memory" "The Thanksgiving Visitor" and "One Christmas" all included in this anthology-and also in his childhood friend Harper Lee's novel To Kill a Mockingbird, where he appears as the strange little Dill.
Capote later acknowledged that it would probably have been better for him if his mother had simply let him spend the rest of his childhood there.
