About This Item

New York:: Random House,, (1965.). Very near fine in a like dustjacket (the dust jacket was folded very slightly off-center.) While not a scarce title, it is quite uncommon in this condition. . First printing. A fascinating account of the killers responsible for the apparently senseless murder of the four members of the Clutter family in rural Kansas. This book essentially created a new form - the non-fiction novel - and is Capote's most important and enduring work. Harper Lee, his lifelong friend and the author of 'To Kill a Mockingbird,' collaborated with Capote on his research for this book. Winner of the Edgar award, basis for several movies. 343 pp.

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.

About Bookfever.com, IOBA

This is our 23rd year in business. We started selling books in the CompuServe Book Collecting forum in 1993, quite a while before there was any commercial Internet. In 1998 we relocated our main business from Sacramento to the Sierra foothills of Amador County, about 35 miles east of downtown Sacramento and opened a store (called Books Upstairs) at the Antiques Upstairs Mall, 5 Main Street, Jackson, CA. (open every day from 10-5) The emphasis there is on Western Americana, children's books, mysteries, science fiction, and inexpensive reading copies of classics and vintage juvenile series. Please let us know if there are any other books you are looking for; we enjoy helping collectors complete their collection and we can often suggest books for reading! .
