Capote

Last night I rewatched  Capote, and re-fell-in-love with Truman. I read In Cold Blood two years ago, and honestly, when people ask me what my favorite book is, I can't help but admit to loving a book about four murders in Kansas. The book is beautifully written, each page dripping with expertly selected descriptive words. If you're looking for a real page turner, perfect for the rainy days we've been having here in Chicago, I urge you to pick up a copy of this.

  1. Have you read other stuff by him? I've never read In Cold Blood, but I loved his unfinished novel Answered Prayers. I even named my first blog after it. Bonus points if you can find that little nugget of buried internet treasure.

    1. I read Breakfast at Tiffany's and liked it much better than the movie, because, simply put, I despise the movie. Also, the ending to the movie was completely different - ie she didn't get pregnant and run away to South America and lose the baby. Just sayin'. BRB GOTTA GO FIND UR BLOG.
