After I read it, I looked up pictures of the Clutter family, and just stared for about five minutes They endured what is probably everyone’s worst fear.Having never heard anything of the Clutter murders prior to reading this book, the experience of reading it was intense, gripping, and suspenseful from beginning to end Capote, with his impartial writing style, relayed facts and details in such a way as to give a complete character illustration of everyone involved: from each of the Clutters, to the investigators, lawyers, and even the murderers themselves He did not reveal his personal sentiments or biases, or even presume to know right from wrong In what he coined a “nonfiction novel,” Capote brilliantly combined the elements of a fictional murder novel with factual journalism and psychological analysis to show the moral dilemmas surrounding the act of murder.In the section about the Clutter family life during their final days before the murders, Capote’s description of their daily routines and habits made what was to come eventroubling Nancy and Kenyon were going through the typical hardships of adolescence; Nancy had a boyfriend of whom her father did not approve and was the most popular girl in school, while Kenyon was selfconscious, nerdy, and socially awkward Herbert and Bonnie’s marriage was a bit shaky; Bonnie had a mysterious and fleeting mental illness, and Herbert was very busy with his farming business and did not have much time to tend to her However, despite their problems, they maintained a strong family bond, were wellliked by the entire community, and we get a sense that things were looking up for them.After the murder takes place, as if to intensify the suspense, Capote does not immediately reveal to us exactly how or why Perry and Dick committed the crime, but instead takes us on their journey as they attempt escape through the deep South while the investigators begin to try to solve the crime We learn much about these two characters through their interactions with each other, letters, diary excerpts, and interviews with family members We are brought deep into their psyche, learning everything from their personal hygiene habits to their mannerisms and quirks In an uncomfortable yet brilliant way, Capote allows us to sympathize with the murderers, if only for a moment What exactly went wrong with them? Did Perry Smith’s childhood of abuse, neglect, and displacement lead him to have moments of extreme callousness and violence? Dick, who had a seemingly normal childhood and a loving family, was in a car accident which left him with a permanent head injury Was his head injury the cause of his downfall, or was it some other unknown character defect? Even though they were capable of evil and coldheartedness, they also had goals and insecurities as well as the capacity for creativity, love, and fear The murders were a tragic “psychological accident” (according to Alvin Dewey), the collision of two personalities gone terribly wrong with an innocent family who was in the wrong situation at the wrong time.The final section of the book, from their first of many trials to their execution, presents us with the moral dilemmas surrounding the punishment of crime Capote does not make any definitive conclusions, but poses many questions: Is execution right or wrong? Why the long delay (approx 6 years) between the guilty verdict and the execution? Was a fair trial possible or necessary, given the horrific nature of the crimes committed? It is impossible to summarize the impact of this book in a few paragraphs, but it will definitely stay with me for years to come. An absolute masterpiece of True Crime literature.Gritty and intelligent!This should be on everyone's 'books to read in a lifetime' list The writing style of this account is absolutely flawless As many of you may know, In Cold Blood is a true account of the heinous murders of the Clutter Family in 1959 Kansas Through Capote's words, you are transported to this small town; you get alternating accounts from the family, the killers and from other individuals close to the crime The description of the night of the actual murders is bonechilling and can disturb sleep, believe me! This is my second time reading this book and I found it just as impactful during my reread To me, it is interesting to think about Capote investigating and compiling his research for the novel He actually went and lived in this town, along with one of his closest friends, Harper Lee, and they painstakingly interviewed hundreds of people associated with the events Just the sheer amount of data collected and how it was intricately woven into a cohesive narrative astounds me.Yes, I know that is what nonfiction novelists do, but this was truly a groundbreaking piece of journalistic writing at the time and should be appreciated as such.Another interesting aspect of this is how focused Capote was in the psychology behind the killers' motivations and actions, as well as their complex relationship with one another both before and after the crimes Ahead of his time in that regard, in my opinion.I think anyone who enjoys True Crime, Criminology, Psychology and even Sociology will find this book absolutely captivating If you have been putting off reading this for any reason, please stop, pick it up, NOW!!! Truman Capote image from the NY Post This is one of the great ones Capote blankets Holcomb, Kansas with his curiosity The root of this work is a ghastly crime Two recently released convicts, seeking a fortune that did not exist, invade the Clutter family home, tie up the four family members present and leave no witnesses It takes some time for the perpetrators to be identified, then tracked down Capote looks at how the townspeople react to this Many, fearful that one of their own was responsible, become withdrawn How do people mourn? He looks at the sequence of investigation that leads ultimately to the capture of the suspects, focusing on one of the chief investigators He looks in depth at the criminals What makes them tick? How could people do such awful things? In reading this I was reminded of some of the great panoramic art works of a bygone age, works by Bosch, Breughel, in which entire towns were brought together into one widescreen image This is what Capote has done But even with all the territory he covers there is considerable depth I was also reminded, for an entirely different reason of Thomas Hardy Capote has an incredible gift for language He writes beautifully, offering descriptions that can bring to tears anyone who truly loves language It has the power of poetry This is truly a classic, a book that defined a new genre of literature If you haven’t read it, you must.Murderers, Dick Hickock and Perry Smith image from ABC AustraliaIn case you are in the market and in the neighborhood, this 10/24/19 item from SF Gate by Clare Trapasso, might be of interest The Untold Story Behind the Infamous 'In Cold Blood' Murder House—and Why It's for Sale This story made a huge impact on my life There were six of us kids and come summer my mother couldn't handle all of us so she farmed me out every year to the aunts One aunt lived in Indio My mother put me on a Greyhound bus and nine years old; all alone with my brown paper grocery bag as luggage I was scared to death A Seagull hit the expansive windshield with splat of blood and feathers Unfazed the driver merely turned on the windshield wipers and made and even bigger mess.I arrived in Indio a hundred plus degrees and my aunt Carol picked me up at the bus station She said she was taking me and my cousin Danny to the movies Oh, boy I loved the movies We stopped at a store to pick up some candy and I bought my favorite ChickenOstick I was nine my cousin was seven, she bought our tickets at The Aztec theater and ushered us through the door She said she'd be back when the movie was over It was nice to be out of the sweltering heat We sat down ate our candy in great anticipation The movie started and it was in black and white It was In Cold Blood, not something a nine year old should be watching.Ten years later my cousin Danny and my Aunt Carol would be arrested for killing my favorite uncle Don in a murder for hire My aunt hired a hit man out of Orange County named Cornelius They stiffed in a fake call of an emergency at the Metropolitan Water Distinct where my uncle worked There was a clause in the life insurance policy that if he died at work it was double indemnity My uncle showed up in the middle of the night and they shot him in the back of the head Of course there is lotsto this true story.And to this day I can not forget In Cold Blood, the movie.Sorry for the rant this was supposed to be a book review.David Putnam Author of the Bruno Johnson series.

Breakfast at Tiffany's recently and enjoying his writing, I could not wait to read this nonfiction thriller in advance of the upcoming group read Writing in his relaxing southern style, Capote turns a horrid crime into a story to make the how's and whys accessible to the average American It is in this regard that I rate this thrilling classic five stars On November 15, 1959 Richard "Dick" Hickock and Perry Smith, on a tip from another inmate, brutally murdered four members of the Clutter family of Holcomb, Kansas Having heard that the Clutters possessed either a safe or $10,000 cash in their home, Smith and Hickock desired this wealth for themselves so that they could live out their days in a Mexican beach resort To their surprise and chagrin, the Clutters did not have neither the safe nor the cash, but Hickock had said to leave no witnesses Crime committed, the pair escaped to a life of continued crimes and violence and believing that authorities would never catch up with them And in the beginning it appeared that this ill advised lifestyle might actually work Due to the relentless work of the Kansas Bureau of Investigations (KBI) lead by Alvin Dewey, Hickock and Smith were eventually brought to justice and ultimately given the death penalty Capote weaves a tale by giving us the backstory of both felons as well as a picture of Holcomb and nearby Garden City, Kansas as an idyllic place to raise a family The crime changed everything Families kept their doors locked and did not allow their children to venture far from home In the surrounding areas, people viewed their lives as a before and after Inevitably, the Clutter case lead to less community interaction and a beginning of a breakdown of society Yet by providing the backstories of the felons, Capote allows the the readers to emphasize with their place in society Dick Hickock was on his way to finishing at the top of his class with a possible athletic scholarship and a degree in engineering His family could not afford a university education even with the scholarship so Hickock went to work An automobile accident left him partially brain damaged as his parents maintained that he was not the same person since, and this one incident lead to his adult life of crime Smith, on the other hand, lead a bleak childhood to the point where readers would feel sorry for him Coming from a fractured family and only a third grade education, Smith suffered from a superiority complex his entire life His role in the Clutter murders was the consummation of a lifetime of rejection The felons came from diametrically opposed upbringings and yet I was left feeling remorse for both Capote pieced together the crime to the point where I felt that I knew the people of Holcomb as well as the principal players in the crime intimately This work lead to a new genre that brings together nonfiction and fiction in a way that history feels like a story Both Capote and his research assistant Harper Lee ended up as award winning authors Their fictional writing skills allowed for the personalization of this tale and ultimately help change the way many write nonfiction Truman Capote is one of 20th America's master storytellers, and In Cold Blood is by many considered his opus His research was detail oriented and allowed him to bring the story of the Clutter murders to the average American home After completing this five star work painting the picture of the how's and whys of murder, I look forward to readingof his charming Southern stories. At the beginning, In Cold Blood reads like a classic southern gothic tale I've read about Harper Lee hanging out with Capote while he put this thing together, and at times it feels like she greatly influenced how it was written You meet the Clutters who are just the nicest people in the world out working hard and going to school and being awesome people in the town And, I know there's all this controversy over how the book is written since it adds fictional conversations and thoughts that Capote obviously couldn't have known, but everything is rooted in the nonfiction account of what happened, and I think it adds a deeper layer of connection to the family I read Helter Skelter in high school, and I remember that book starting out right from the gate with all the details of the murders before diving into the Manson family and the trial In Cold Blood worksin reverse and saves the details for later, and my God when I got there I didn't even want to read about what happened It was all so senseless and random I had a hard time finishing the book after that I just wanted it to be over Often beautifully and brilliantly written, sometimes tedious to get through, sometimes way too meticulous with details, sometimes spending a couple of pages discussing cats or a building or something, this book is a classic in the true crime genre I haven't read a lot of true crime in my reading life, but I've read enough to know that this deserves a spot at the top of the list Capote does an excellent job laying out the story, and gives the family, the murderers, and the cops an overwhelming amount of description and development I knewabout the killers than I ever wanted to know, and I want things to go a different direction even though I knew they wouldn't Now I have to watch the movie, then Capote, then Infamous This is a story that will be stuck in my head for a while It's a harsh reminder of the evil that exists in the world, and how fragile our existence on this planet really is It's also a very detailed account of the senseless murder of most of a family, but I took away a lot of other stuff from its pages, too Read it. A seminal work for the nonfiction novel and the true crime genre, Truman Capote's In Cold Blood stands apart from most of its literary descendants Not only is it compelling and suspenseful even when you know (like many crime dramatizations) what's going to happen, it's also very wellwritten In fact, its literary quality gives In Cold Blood a dimension which few other nonfiction novels will match The evolution of the form, since In Cold Blood, is nothing short of astonishing It makes you appreciate how different the experience of reading the book is now compared to when the book was published Yet, it is not a stuffy classic This work made the world safe for nonfiction! Definitely worth reading! I just wonder why it took me so long to get this masterpiece on my currentlyreading shelf What a breathtaking story! And told in the most amazing novelistic style! The coldblooded murders in Kansas in 1956 is described by a cold, distant narrator via the interviews of the family, acquaintances, and community around the victims and the hairraising stories of Perry and Bobby, the murderers It is a real pageturner I couldn't put it down! The descriptions of the youth of all the tragic protagonists are explored from every angle as under a magnifying glass In Cold Blood kept me thinking that most of the recent murder mystery shows and movies were indebted to this piece of literature (that Capote probably deserved a Pulitzer for but was passed over, helas, in 1965) There is this strange homoeroticism between the two murderers (who call each other "sugar" and "honey") but who both spout homophobic words throughout Like the lawyers, I felt Richard was the coldest one and Perry the most twisted and tragic This book is a true masterpiece of the nonfiction novel (even if some of the facts brought out by Capote were disputed) and its narration is stupendous in character development and maintaining an enormous amount of suspense endtoend It is evenastounding because the reader already knows who commits the crime, the novel only elucidates the "why" and even that is ambiguous and pathetic An awesome read.Note that in A Capote Reader, there is a great short essay about the making of the movie In Cold Blood where Capote talks a bit about the 6 years it took him to write this masterpiece (Haven't seen the movie yet :/)[UPDATE] I finally saw the movie Capote and it was absolutely amazing as a backstory to this book I still haven't found the movie In Cold Blood yet.
