The last of Capote’s books to be published, it was actually one of his earliest works, found years after his death. His raw talent is obvious even in this early if not completely polished work. A perfect summer read about a young girl on her own for the summer while her wealthy family summers abroad, and her forbidden romance. The end is rather abrupt but somehow fitting. I’m now itching to read his more well known works as I have only ever read In Cold Blood.
