The Grass Harp Truman Capote read online review & book description:

Set on the outskirts of a small Southern town, The Grass Harp tells the story of three endearing misfits—an orphaned boy and two whimsical old ladies—who one day take up residence in a tree house. As they pass sweet yet hazardous hours in a china tree, The Grass Harp manages to convey all the pleasures and responsibilities of freedom. But most of all it teaches us about the sacredness of love, “that love is a chain of love, as nature is a chain of life.”

This volume also includes Capote’s A Tree of Night and Other Stories, which the Washington Post called “unobtrusively beautiful . . . a superlative book.”

    I enjoyed the lyrical language of the novel, GRASS HARP! The series of short stories gave my wonder of Truman Capotes mental state. They were disjointed and more than strange rather like a bad psychedelic trip. I may try some more of his novels later just to verify my initial impression of his writing. Interesting experience, just not sure I want a repetition.
