About This Item

New York: Random House, 1965. Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine. First edition. Very slightly cocked, else fine in a just about fine dustwrapper with a Kroch and Brentano's sticker on the rear panel. Signed by the author on a tipped-in leaf for the Kroch and Brentano's First Edition Circle. Pulitzer Prize-winner for non-fiction. Capote's neighbor and close friend Harper Lee acted as his secretary during his investigations into the tragic murders. Basis for the excellent film adapted for the screen and directed by Richard Brooks, with Robert Blake, Scott Wilson, John Forsythe, Quincy Jones's music, and Conrad Hall's famous cinematography. A nice, fresh copy.

Synopsis

In Cold Blood is a 1966 book by American author Truman Capote. The book details the brutal 1959 murders of Herbert Clutter, a wealthy farmer from Holcomb, Kansas, and his wife and two of their children. When Capote learned of the quadruple murder before the killers were captured, he decided to travel to Kansas and write about the crime.
