Capote has a wonderful style of story-telling that leaves you wanting more, even though each story is complete in itself. I also enjoyed the three short stories: "A house of flowers", "A diamond guitar" "A christmas memory". I found the last story, "A Christmas memory" particularly poignant - a beautiful story of two friends, one old, one young and their friendship and generosity. The image at the end of two kites flying, reminded me of the start of "The Kite Runner".
p.161 "And that is why, walking across a school campus on this particular December morning, I keep searching the sky. As if I expected to see, rather like hearts, a lost pair of kites hurrying toward heaven."
