DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The most famous true crime novel of all time and one of the first non-fiction novels ever written; In Cold Blood is the bestseller that haunted its author long after he finished writing it. On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun held a few inches from their faces. There was no apparent motive for the crime, and there were almost no clues. As Truman Capote reconstructs the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers, he generates both mesmerizing suspense and astonishing empathy. In Cold Blood is a work that transcends its moment, yielding poignant insights into the nature of American violence.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Truman Capote’s first novel is a story of almost supernatural intensity and inventiveness, an audacious foray into the mind of a sensitive boy as he seeks out the grown-up enigmas of love and death in the ghostly landscape of the deep South. At the age of twelve, Joel Knox is summoned to meet the father who abandoned him at birth. But when Joel arrives at the decaying mansion in Skully’s Landing, his father is nowhere in sight. What he finds instead is a sullen stepmother who delights in killing birds; an uncle with the face—and heart—of a debauched child; and a fearsome little girl named Idabel who may offer him the closest thing he has ever known to love.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Inspired by mysteries that still surround the case explored by Truman Capote's In Cold Blood, We Were Killers Once pits Brigid Quinn against a man who has gotten away with evil for nearly fifty years--and now has his sights on her family. Jeremiah Beaufort has just been released from prison after a very long time and the world has changed. Most importantly, scientific advances have allowed for DNA testing--and the internet has spread the news that there may exist a long-hidden document that will change what is known about not one but two horrific murders. His determination to erase any clue that could put him on death row brings him to Tucson, Arizona, intent on finding a document he believes is in the possession of Carlo Di Forenza, ex-priest, retired professor, and husband of Brigid Quinn. Beaufort's odd behaviour immediately sets off alarms for Brigid, who assumes he is after her for something she did while in the FBI. Brigid's quest to find out what he is after takes her to Florida--only to discover the truth too late to stop Beaufort taking her beloved gentle husband hostage. A high-stakes, incredibly tense stand-off ensues, as Brigid takes extreme measures to return and, she hopes, neutralize Beaufort before he kills Carlo--and without ending up dead herself. Woven into the suspensful plot is Beaufort's own voice, unforgettably unfolding a story of tragedy and evil that imagines a story-behind-the story of the horrific murders that inspired In Cold Blood, a book and a case that continues to fascinate more than fifty years after the event.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Examination Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Freiburg, language: English, abstract: When In Cold Blood was first published, critics had a hard time categorizing the book. Capote himself held that he had written a "nonfiction novel (Capote in Plimpton 1966: 2)" and that he had thereby created an altogether new genre. In the subtitle, Capote stresses his central claim regarding this new genre, assuring the reader that what she is about to delve into is "a true account of a multiple murder and its consequences (Capote 2000 [1966])." As will be seen in the opening chapter, criticism of In Cold Blood has therefore to a great degree revolved around Capote's and the book's adherence to this assertion of truth. The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary on Historical Principles (SOED) lists as the three first entries under the head word "true" true /tru: / 1 Steadfast in allegiance, loyal; faithful, constant (...). 2 Honest, honourable, upright, virtuous; straightforward, sincere (...). 3 Of a statement, report, etc.: consistent with fact; conforming with reality (...). The following investigation of In Cold Blood and of the biopic based on Capote's work on the book, Bennett Miller's Capote (2005), will proceed along the lines of these three aspects of the definition, questioning Capote's claim of rendering a "true account." The genre chapter and large parts of the ensuing discussion of In Cold Blood will be especially concerned with the definition's third aspect, In Cold Blood's consistency with fact and its conformity with reality. The question will be raised as to whether or not a true account of real events is possible at all, and in what ways Capote and other writers of New Journalism, as the genre is most frequently called today, have tried to achieve such true accounts.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Murder. Not intricately plotted "whodunit." Not fiery passionate fury. But dirty, sad, disturbing actions from real people. That's what Truman Capote decided to use for In Cold Blood—his bold experiment in the realm of the non-fiction "novel." Following in that legacy is CAPOTE IN KANSAS, a fictionalized tale of Capote's time in Middle America researching his classic book. Capote's struggles with the town, the betrayal, and his own troubled past make this book a compelling portrait of one of the greatest literary talents of the 20th century. A new edition of the critically acclaimed graphic novel by Ande Parks (LONE RANGER) and Chris Samnee (DAREDEVIL).
