Short and Sweet: The Bite-Size Book Club
Sometimes less is more. Why clog your bookshelf with large tomes and heavy doorstopper novels? It's enough to scare the Dickens out of a reader!
Each month, we'll delve into a different short story or novella. Classic tales, modern yarns, anything under two hundred pages!
So come and dip your toes into the shallow end of the literary pool. The story's fine!
This month's selection: The Complete Stories of Truman Capote
A landmark collection that brings together Truman Capote’s life’s work in the form he called his “great love,” The Complete Stories confirms Capote’s status as a master of the short story.
Ranging 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 here, in stories as elegant as they are heartfelt, as haunting as they are compassionate. Reading them reminds us of the miraculous gifts of a beloved American original. (Vintage Books)
