And its consequences. Truman Capote was born Truman Streckfus Persons on September 30, 1924, in New Orleans. His early years were affected by an unsettled family life. I met Truman Capote several years later.
In Cold Blood is a work that transcends its moment, yielding poignant insights into the nature of American violence. Truman Capote, 1924 - 1984 Novelist and playwright Truman Streckfus Person was born in 1924 in New Orleans to a salesman and a 16-year-old beauty queen. His parents divorced when he was four years old and was then raised by relatives for a few years in Monroeville. His mother was remarried to a successful businessman, moved to New York, and Truman adopted his stepfather's surname. He attended Greenwich High School and never went to college.
Capote sets every scene up meticulously, flashing between narratives fittingly and allowing the reader to soak in all perspectives.
Not a moment is wasted in the novel, from painting each character with vivid detail to exploring even the smallest impacts of the Holcomb murder. Capote sets every scene up meticulously, flashing between narratives fittingly and allowing the reader to soak in all perspectives. Even the murderers are given time in the limelight, allowing an odd sense of understanding to bubble from them. Make no mistake, there are details that are askew.

I picked up a copy of this book at the Dodge City Library. The librarian at the check out desk, a woman about mid-sixties, slender, elegant, and still attractive ran her finger along the edge of the spine. I noticed a shiver had rolled up her back and rippled her shoulders. In Cold Blood kept me thinking that most of the recent murder mystery shows and movies were indebted to this piece of literature (that Capote probably deserved a Pulitzer for but was passed over, helas, in 1965).
