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.
“Remarkable. . . . Infused with a tender laughter, charming human warmth, [and] a feeling for the positive quality of life.” —New York Herald Tribune
“The Grass Harp charms you into sharing the author’s feeling that there is a special poetry—a spontaneity and wonder and delight—in lives untarnished by conformity and common sense.” —The Atlantic
