The last two years I’ve had an intense interest in literary nonfiction.
“I got this idea of doing a really serious big work – it would be precisely like a novel, with a single difference: Every word of it would be true from beginning to end.” ~ Truman Capote
Capote was talking about his ground-breaking novel, “In Cold Blood,” which chronicles the 1959 murders of Herbert Clutter and his family in Holcomb, Kansas. Capote and Harper Lee, who was his childhood friend, interviewed investigators and thousands of residents. It’s considered the original nonfiction novel.
