“The Complete Stories of Truman Capote” by Truman Capote
Modern Library recently released a brand new edition of Truman Capote’s short stories and it’s just divine. If you’re not familiar with the eccentric gay writer’s work, this is a great starting point. The collection features 19 of his best stories, including some that have never been published before. They range from the gothic South to the chic East Coast, from rural children to aging urban sophisticates, and are all told in Capote’s heartfelt but haunting voice.
