You are probably already familiar with this book as well as the movie. This is the true story about the brutal murder of the Clutter family, of Holcomb, Kansas, by two down and out losers.
Capote's writing style is folksy. He skillfully draws you into the story and into each character's life.
I hadn't known that Capote and Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird) were childhood friends or that she helped him research this book.
