Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

With the publication of this book, Capote permanently ripped through the barrier separating crime reportage from serious literature. As he reconstructs the 1959 murder of a Kansas farm family and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers, Capote generates suspense and empathy.


Review:

"[This] is the best documentary account of an American crime ever written, partly IN COLD BLOOD deserves highest marks among American crime histories, it also raises certain questions. What, more or less, is the narrative intended to be: and in what spirit are we supposed to take it? While the book 'reads' like excellent fiction, it purports to be strictly factual and thoroughly documented, but the documentation is, for the most part, suppressed in the text....Whatever its 'genre,' IN COLD BLOOD is admirable: as harrowing as it is, ultimately, though implicitly, reflective in temper...."

F.W. Dupee, New York Review of Books, 02/03/1966

Review:

"IN COLD BLOOD...is a masterpiece--agonizing, terrible, possessed, proof that the times, so surfeited with disasters, are still capable of tragedy. The tragedy was existential. The murder was seemingly without motive. The killers...almost parodied the literary anti-hero....There are two Truman Capotes. One is the artful charmer, prone to the gossamer and the exquisite....The other, darker and stronger, is the discoverer of death....He has traveled far from the misty, moss-hung Southern-Gothic landscapes of his youth."

Conrad Knickerbocker, New York Times Book Review, 01/16/1966
