About This Item

New York: Random House, 1953. First Edition, First Printing. A True Account Of A Multiple Murder And Its Consequences. First printing of both the book and dust jacket, with all points. The copyright page states First Printing. The top edge is stained. Not a book club edition, (with rear cover without the bce indentation). Dust jacket with 1/66 on the front flap, $5.95 price, and with "Publishers Of The American College Dictionary And The Modern Library" at the bottom of the rear flap. In very good condition, very fresh and well preserved. The dust jacket is protected in a removable archival protector. Some small chips along the extremities, and some creases, small closed tears, but still near fully intact. There is some light generalized wear. Hinges sound. No previous ownership names. In highly collectible condition. Shortly after reading a short New York Times article about a shooting in the Midwest, a “reporter named Truman Capote traveled to Kansas to investigate the shotgun murder of a farm family. The result changed journalism forever” (Salon). “Hailed as a masterpiece,” In Cold Blood established Capote as the “herald of a new genre, ‘the non-fiction novel,’ which recognizes the convergence of fiction and fact in times of outrage, the insane surrealism of daily life” (Hart, 122; Allen, 247). All books are professionally wrapped and padded, to help ensure safe handling during transit. We regularly ship internationally. And, we offer a full refund guarantee, per our terms as described on our site, with notification of such intent requested. Additional photographs are available. Please contact us with any inquiries.

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.
