Three Truman Capote stories are presented in this anthology: In “Miriam,” a heartbroken nanny is told she isn’t needed to care for a new child. In “Among the Paths to Eden,” a lonely old woman visits a cemetery and meets a widower placing flowers on his late wife’s grave. In “A Christmas Memory,” a boy and his aunt prepare for Christmas by making fruitcakes for their family in small-town, pre–World War II Alabama.
