K.D. Absolutely (oldkd) This author is my avatar. I am a novelette away from completing his novels or novelettes. There are some stories included in my edition of Breakfast at Tiffany's and Music for Chameleons so I guess I sampled him already in that format. But I am still to get a copy of his The Complete Stories of Truman Capote. He is not a populist novelist, right?

Lobstergirl | 123 comments I wish he had written more nonfiction. I really can't stand his fiction.
