In Cold Blood Overview

In Cold Blood is the ninth work of celebrated writer Truman Capote. This book is a work of non-fiction, Capote's attempt to create a new literary genre that he called the non-fiction novel. Capote writes of the true murders of the Clutter family in rural Kansas, the hunt for the killers, and the subsequent trial and execution of those two men. In Cold Blood is a book that remains controversial nearly fifty years after its publication not only for Capote's groundbreaking work, but for the poetic license he is thought to have taken with some of the events that are featured in his book.
