One midwinter in 1950s New York, Harper Lee went to stay with friends. Little did she know she was about to be given the gift of a lifetime…
An excellent short story for Christmas from Harper Lee.
I recently wrote a post after re-reading her classic To Kill A Mockingbird. In short, it looked at how our brain selects and deletes certain memories.
This story evoked a particular memory of a childhood Christmas in 1970, when I received my greatest ever present, the 1970 World Cup Subbuteo football game, including real working floodlights.
Not quite the gift of a lifetime, but one that would have a prominent influence on me for future years.
