reviewed on + 6 more book reviews


I had, of course, seen movies and read about the case that Capote describes. I found, however, I knew very little. Capote masterfully captures the lives of each member of the murdered family, which makes what happens to them all the more tragic. Capote paints a picture of Holcomb, Kansas, the people who lived there and the pair who drove in one night and changed a safe, rural town into a nightmare. Superbly written.
