631 pp. First edition. "An American original, Truman Capote was one of the best writers of his generation, a superb and almost matchless stylist. His short stories made him a literary celebrity while still in his teens, and for the next thirty years he was a comet of genius, fame, and finally self-destruction. His first novel, Other Voices, Other Rooms, published in 1948, was followed ten years later by Breakfast at Tiffany's, which introduced to the world one of American literature's most endearing heroines, the irrepressible Holly Golightly. In the 1960s came the phenomenal success of In Cold Blood, a true-crime story whose novelistic techniques have influenced non-fiction writers ever since." Includes black and white photographs. Newspaper clipping and magazine clipping about Truman Capote inserted into book.Keywords: TRUMAN CAPOTE BIOGRAPHY WRITER AUTHOR LITERARY FIRST EDITION First edition.
