To cap off today’s A-Very-Special-Downer-Christmas theme here on Nippertown, I offer Truman Capote’s “A Christmas Memory,” a short memoir of his childhood in rural Alabama that I re-read again every few years to have a good cry. I didn’t realize it had been made into an Emmy award-winning film back in 1966. It’s available on Youtube in six parts. Here’s Part 1:
