Most readers know Truman Capote as the author of Breakfast at Tiffany's and In Cold Blood; or they remember his notorious social life and wild and witty public appearances. But he was also the author of superb short tales that were as elegant as they were heartfelt, as grotesque as they were compassionate. Now, on the occasion of what would have been his eightieth birthday, the Modern Library presents the first collection that includes all of Capote's short fiction-a volume that confirms his status as one of the masters of this form. Among the selections are "A Tree of Night," in which an innocent student, sitting on a train beside a slatternly woman and her deaf-mute companion, enters a seductive nightmare that brings back the deepest fears of childhood ... "House of Flowers," the inspiration for a celebrated Broadway musical, which tells of a superstitious prostitute who learns to love in a way no one else can ever understand ... the holiday perennial "A Christmas Memory," famously adapted into a superb made-for-TV movie ... and "The Bargain," Capote's melancholy, never-before-published 1950 story about a suburban housewife's shifting fortunes. From the gothic South to the chic East Coast, from rural children to aging urban sophisticates, all the unforgettable places and people of Capote's oeuvre are captured in this first-ever compendium. The Collected Stories of Truman Capote should restore its author to a place above mere celebrity, to the highest levels of American letters.… (mais)

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. ( )

A collection of extraordinarily well written stories. Some make you think. Some end with you wondering what on earth had really been happening. I really enjoyed reading them. I recommend this book to anybody that likes a good story. ( )

You forget how a great a write Truman Capote was until you pick up a piece of his writing and find you can't put it down. Although uneven, the stories in this collection overall are mesmerizing. He pulls you into an alternate universe where you actually care what happens to the characters, and he manages to do so in a few short pages. ( )

From this collection it becomes clear that Capote was not a true short story writer. There are some autobiographical stories in which the same elements reappear, there are some gothic fables which are rather artificial. The best stories are anecdotical and those where original and weird characters appear. Capote is very good in characterization and also succeeds in moving the reader in some cases. One of the wittiest stories ever is Among the Paths to Eden. ( )
