Recommended for: Searchers for the post-WWII great American novel
Read in October, 2007

Truman Capote's first novel. It is often summed up by calling it Southern Gothic, which it is in spades. Often it is also remarked how loosely autobiographical this work is, which it also is in spades. Very nice prose, pretty good story, excellent characters. Definitely lacking the brilliance of In Cold Blood, but it is a very different type of book.
