Moscow: Pravda, 1967. First Thus. Softcover. 16.5 x 12.5 cm. 61,[3] pp. Original pictorial wrappers, saddle-stapled. Moderate wear and light stains in wrappers. Very good.

The first collection of stories by Truman Capote published in the Soviet Union, in a special book supplement to OGONIOK, the popular illustrated Russian magazine founded in 1899. The stories were translated by the famous Soviet translator Sulamif Mitina (1922-2000), who had also rendered Graham Greene, Arthur Miller, J. D. Salinger, Tennessee Williams, and very other modern English-language writers into Russian. The book contains a short biographical sketch of Capote, the title story, and three additional stories: "Jug of Silver," A Christmas Memory," and "Children on Their Birthdays."With an interesting illustrated Soviet advertisement on the back encouraging pedestrians at train stations to "Use bridges for crossing!"
