About This Item

New York: Random House, 1965. First edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. Near Fine in like jacket, with just a hint of toning to front and rear panels. Gentle rubbing to lower corners. Top stain dark. In all, a pleasing copy of this true crime narrative, which initiated a new genre. At its initial release, In Cold Blood catapulted the already infamous Capote into an even higher authorial strata, and it earned him praise as the inventor of a new genre: the non-fiction novel. Drawing on over 8,000 pages of notes and interviews, Capote constructed a chilling true-life tale of a quadruple homicide in a small Midwestern town, examining the town members affected by the deaths as well as psychological examinations of the killers themselves. The New York Times immediately praised the book: "a masterpiece...agonizing, terrible, possessed, proof that the times, so surfeited with disasters, are still capable of tragedy.". Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.

Synopsis

In Cold Blood is a 1966 book by American author Truman Capote. The book details the brutal 1959 murders of Herbert Clutter, a wealthy farmer from Holcomb, Kansas, and his wife and two of their children. When Capote learned of the quadruple murder before the killers were captured, he decided to travel to Kansas and write about the crime.
