Fruitcake: Memories of Truman Capote and Sook
Truman Capote's humble yet legendary aunt, Marie Rudisill, knows that fruitcakes are meant to be enjoyed not only during the Christmas holidays but year-round. The roots for her love of fruitcake in all its varieties run much deeper than sheer nostalgia for old-fashioned holidays. Rudisill's mythic stories of the Old South provide a poignant glimpse into holidays of a more gracious era while shedding new insight into the life of one of the most significant writers of the twentieth century. The twenty-two time-tested recipes in this book range from chocolate and rum fruitcakes to thematic cakes such as the Robert E. Lee fruitcake and one said to have come from Martha Washington's personal cookbook.
