Inspired by a 300-word article in The New York Times, Capote spent six years exploring and writing the story of Kansas farmer Herb Clutter, his family and the two young killers who brutally murdered them. In Cold Blood created a genre of novelistic non-fiction and made Capote's name with its unflinching portrayal of a comprehensible and thoroughly human evil.Hide synopsis

You have to be able to transport emotionally and be into the mind of not only the writer but the people in the book. I could do this better with a first edition book, and the seller met and exceeded all my expectations with this copy.
Although I read this book several years ago, I located it through Alibris and reread it. It was truly one of those books I could not put down. It was not a 'gorefest' - but a fast-moving, gripping story. I could easily picture the participants and locales of all involved. Truman Capote writes this particular book with a southern folksy yet sophisticated choice of words. I'll read this again in the future, and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a compelling real life tale.
