Capote's prose is languid but precise. He takes uncomfortable subject matter and reveals fascinating insights into the minds of cold-blooded killers.

Description: Amazon.com Review "Until one morning in mid-November of 1959, few Americans--in fact, few Kansans--had ever heard of Holcomb. Like the waters of the river, like the motorists on the highway, and like the yellow trains streaking down the Santa Fe tracks, drama, in the shape of exceptional happenings, had never stopped there."

"You can read it to witness the beginnings of New Journalism, or because it's arguably Capote's finest work, or because it's illuminating about human depravity.

"What is is about? It details the 1959 murders by Richard Eugene "Dick" Hickock and Perry Edward Smith of four members of the Herbert Clutter family in the small farming community of Holcomb, Kansas. Personal note: Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it and I was definitely not disappointed at all. Indeed, it was a fascinating thriller, probably the best thriller I have ever read. Quote: "Deal me out, baby,ā€™ Dick said. ā€˜Iā€™m a normal."
