Truman Capote
amazon.co.uk
Bolstered by an Oscar-caliber performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman in the title role, Capote ranked highly among the best films of 2005. Written by actor/screenwriter Dan Futterman and based on selected chapters from the biography by Gerald Clarke, this mercilessly perceptive drama shows how Truman Capote brought about his own self-destruction in the course of writing In Cold Blood, the "nonfiction novel" that was immediately acclaimed as a literary milestone. After learning of brutal killings in rural Holcomb, Kansas, in November 1959, Capote gained the confidence of captured killers Perry Smith (Clifton Collins, Jr.) and Dick Hickock (Mark Pellegrino) in an effort to tell their story, but he ultimately sacrificed his soul in the process of writing his greatest book. Hoffman transcends mere mimicry to create an utterly authentic, psychologically tormented portrait of an insincere artist who was not above lying and manipulation to get what he needed. Bennett Miller's intimate direction focuses on the consequences of Capote's literary ambition, tempered by an equally fine performance by Catherine Keener as Harper Lee, Capote's friend and the author of To Kill a Mockingbird, who served as Capote's quiet voice of conscience. Spanning the seven-year period between the Kansas murders and the publication of In Cold Blood in 1966, Capote reveals the many faces of a writer who grew too close to his subjects, losing his moral compass as they were fitted with a hangman's noose. --Jeff ShannonStills from Capote (click for larger image)   read more

Truman Capote: Conversations (Literary Conversations S.)
amazon.co.uk
Truman Capote Truman Capote once said, "The thing I like to do most in the whole world is talk ...," and talk he does in the more than two dozen interviews collected in this book. The topics are often gossip about the famous people Capote ran with, but always he provides revealing information about his writings--the authors who inspired him, his meticulous methods of research and composition, and his personal reverence for the craft of authorship. He was, as the editor notes, "fiercely devoted to his art, and keenly aware of his place in the world of letters."While his detractors, such as Ernest Hemingway and Gore Vidal, spoke out long and loud against the feisty and medi...  read more

The Early Stories of Truman Capote
amazon.co.uk
The early fiction of one of the nation's most celebrated writers, Truman Capote, as he takes his first bold steps into the canon of American literature. Recently rediscovered in the archives of the New York Public Library, these short stories provide an unparalleled look at Truman Capote writing in his teens and early 20s, before he penned such classics as Other Voices, Other Rooms, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and In Cold Blood. This collection of more than a dozen pieces showcases the young Capote developing the unique voice and sensibility that would make him one of the 20th century's most original writers. Spare yet heartfelt, these stories summon our compassion and feeling at every turn. Capote was always drawn to outsiders - women, children, African Americans, the poor - because he felt like one himself from a very early age. Here we see Capote's powers of empathy developing as he depicts his characters struggling at the margins of their known worlds. A boy experiences the violence of adulthood when he pursues an escaped convict into the woods. Petty jealousies lead to a life-altering event for a popular girl at Miss Burke's Academy for Young Ladies. In a time of extraordinary loss, a woman fights to save the life of a child who has her lover's eyes. In these stories, we see early signs of Capote's genius for creating unforgettable characters built of complexity and yearning. Young women experience the joys and pains of new love. Urbane sophisticates are worn down by cynicism. Children and adults alike seek understanding in a treacherous world. There are tales of crime and violence, of racism and injustice, of poverty and despair. And there are tales of generosity and tenderness, compassion and connection, wit and wonder. Above all there is the developing voice of a writer born in the Deep South who will use and eventually break from that tradition to become a literary figure like no other.   read more

Truman Capote and the Legacy of
amazon.co.uk
Ralph F. Vosswas a high school junior inPlainville, Kansasin mid-November of 1959 when four members of the Herbert Clutter family were murdered inHolcomb, Kansas, by four shotgun blasts that, all told, ended six human lives, an unimaginable horror in a quiet farm community during the Eisenhower years. No one inKansasor elsewhere could then have foreseen the emergence of Capote s bookwhich has never gone out of print, has twice been made into a major motion picture, remains""required reading in criminology, American Studies, sociology, and English classes, and has been the source of two recent biographical films. Voss examines Capote and"In Cold Blood"from many perspectives, not only as the crowning achievement of Capote s career, but also as a story in itself, focusing on Capote s artfully composed text, his extravagant claims for it as reportage, and its larger status in American popular culture. Voss argues that Capote s publication of"In Cold Blood"in 1966 forever transcended his reputation as a first-rate stylist but second-rate writer of Southern gothic fiction; that"In Cold Blood"actually is a gothic novel, a sophisticated culmination of Capote s artistic development and interest in lurid regionalism, but one that nonetheless eclipsed him both personally and artistically. He also explores Capote s famous claim that he created a genre called the non-fiction novel, and its status as a foundational work of true crime writing as practiced by authors ranging from Tom Wolfe and Norman Mailer to James Ellroy, Joe McGinniss, and John Berendt. Voss also examines Capote s artful manipulation of the story s facts and circumstances: his masking of crucial homoerotic elements to enhance its marketability; his need for the killers to remain alive long enough to get the story, and then his need for them to die so that he could complete it; and Capote s style, his shaping of the narrative, and his selection of detailswhy it served him to include"this"and not"that," and the ef  read more
