From book cover: 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 the sacredness of love, "that love is a chain of love, as nature is a chain of life".My first book in a Classics challenge I set for myself. I've seen the movie, and enjoyed it, as well as reading the book. I've always enjoyed Truman Capote's works.

I love Capote's books. I have for as long as I can remember. This book is one of his gentle, Southern tales of a young boy growing up with aunts who don't quite fit in, an autobiographical setting he uses often in his writing.Here's a quote from the book, just in case you've never read Capote before:"I've read that past and future are a spiral, one coil containing the next and predicting its theme. Perhaps this is so; but my own life has seemed to me more a series of closed circles, rings that do not evolve with the freedom of a spiral: for me to get from one to the other has meant a leap, not a glide. What weakens me is the lull between, the wait before I know where to jump."
