A veteran technology executive and established writer, Gary McAvoy is also a collector and dealer of rare historical letters and literary manuscripts. Those who share this passion know few things compare to holding history in one’s hands—a letter penned by F. Scott Fitzgerald to his editor, Maxwell Perkins, discussing royalties for The Great Gatsby, for example, or one by Truman Capote lamenting work on his book In Cold Blood.

It was this last acquisition, in fact, that sparked the intriguing discoveries leading up to Gary’s forthcoming book, And Every Word Is True, a revealing look at startling new disclosures about the investigation surrounding the infamous 1959 Clutter family murders, heinous crimes chillingly portrayed in Capote's book.

Truman Capote
“In Cold Blood is the story of these six people—the [four] Clutters, who died together November 15, 1959, and Perry Smith and Richard Hickock, who were hanged April 14, 1965. And my book is the story of their lives and their deaths. It’s a completely factual account and every word is true.

— Truman Capote, interviewed in A Visit with Truman Capote, Maysles Films, 1966 (alternate title: With Love From Truman).”

“And suppose you don’t like it? Excellent question; and, strangely, one I’d never asked myself, principally because I had chosen the ingredients, and I always have faith in my own judgment.”
