Capote: A Biography by Gerald Clarke
Capote: A Biography

Tristan, April 10, 2011

An epic, 600 page account of one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, as a biography Capote has it all: tracking the author from his rough childhood, to the height of his literary fame, and to his descent into eccentricity in his later life, you will learn so much about the the man behind the legend that you will feel like you had a long, personal conversation with the writer himself. A must-read for any Capote worshipper and for anyone longing to learn more about a truly gifted writer.

Talk about blowing me away! This moody, creepy, and claustrophobic novel just keep on throwing twists and turns almost every page of the way! A must read for fans of good thriller fiction!

A very scary and freaky book! King's writing of the Gage family is terrifying! A must read!
