Capote, Truman
In Cold Blood
Random House, New York, 1965. 8 vo. [218 x 151 x 35 mm]. [12]; 343; [1] pp. Bound in publisher's red cloth with gilt titles and silver decoration, red endpapers, top edge green, in the first issue dust-jacket, designed by S. Neil Fujita, and with correct date code (1/66). Very light wear to extremities of the dust jacket and a small stain on the rear panel. A near fine, very good copy. Capote's ground breaking non-fiction work on the murder of a Nebraska family which earned him praise as the inventor of a new genre: the non-fiction novel. Drawing on over 8,000 pages of notes and interviews, Capote constructed a chilling true-life tale of a quadruple homicide in a small Midwestern town, examining the town members affected by the deaths as well as psychological examinations of the killers themselves. The New York Times immediately praised the book: "a masterpiece.agonizing, terrible, possessed, proof that the times, so surfeited with disasters, are still capable of tragedy."
