In Cold Blood
New York: Random House. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION of Capote's masterpiece, one of only 500 copies signed by Capote. "One of the more distinguished achievements in reportage by any writer, In Cold Blood first appeared serially in the New Yorker, where it examined with extraordinary depth, precision, and drama the victims and their killers. So immense was the stress of the editorial undertaking, however, that Capote became addicted to tranquilizers and developed an emotional attachment to the criminals, whose deaths by hanging he witnessed at the Kansas state penitentiary. From more than four thousand pages of typewritten notes gathered with Harper Lee, Capote's celebrated 'non-fiction novel' won the Mystery Writers of America Edgar Allan Poe Award and exacted enough of a psychological toll upon its author to preclude much sustained work in the future" (American National Biography). New York: Random House, [1965]. Octavo, original black cloth, original slipcase; original acetate. A little edgewear and chip at the bottom of the acetate. Book and original slipcase fine.
