The Complete Stories (Penguin Modern Classics) - Truman Capote

These stories show a great capacity for capturing time, place and character. Highly evocative. On the whole I think I prefered the Depression era Alabama childhood stories to the more recently set ones, but the one set in a cemetary was great. This volume has made me take a wider interest in Capote's work.

Among the Paths to Eden: not sure why I find this story so delightful.

House of Flowers: one of the better stories - also appearing in my edition of Breakfast at Tiffany's, which explains why it felt familiar.
