A book inscribed by Truman Capote to Harry Potter

thanksgiving-visitor1Earlier today we discovered this remarkable book for sale on AbeBooks – a copy of The Thanksgiving Visitor by Truman Capote – inscribed by Truman Capote to Harry Potter. What a wonderful coincidence! Capote signed the book in January 1978 – six years before his death. Apparently Mr Potter was a doctor in New Jersey. Some how I think that there is little crossover between the fans of In Cold Blood – an account of the murder of four people in rural Kansas – and people who like stories about muggles, wizards and bludgers.

Some of you may remember AbeBooks’ search for people really called Harry Potter a few years ago. There are lots of people called Harry Potter, including a very interesting undertaker in Massachusetts.
