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.”

"Narrator Cody Roberts gives a soft Southern lilt to characters who are drawn together by a growing affection and an understanding that the love we feel throughout our lives is connected to the people and places of our youth. This classic coming-of-age story, featuring three eccentric characters who decide to live in a tree house, re-creates the magic of growing up in a small Southern town. Roberts captures all of orphan Collin Fenwick's youthful hopefulness. Capote based this story on some of his own experiences, and Roberts expresses the melancholy and joy permeating that childhood world. This production includes a collection of short stories showcasing a masterful writer at his best, aided by an adept and sensitive narrator.
