Happy Birthday, Truman Capote.
I gotta give a shout-out to my book club–I probably never would have picked up this book otherwise. Thanks very much, S.
by Truman Capote
Gush, gush, gush! No blood but my praise for this amazing book spills freely forth.
Murder mysteries, thrillers, and dark novels I have read in sufficient number to have a base of experience for this book’s fair assessment. Fitting into, indeed creating, a genre that has come to be known as true crime, this story of the 1959 mass murder of the Clutter family in a small, quiet Kansas town is a definite, though perhaps surprising, page-turner. It may aid reader enjoyment (is that the word?) not to be a seasoned reader of true crime or crime fiction, as I am not. I am confident the book will satisfy the hungers of realists and the detail oriented, which I am.
