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.
