This week, the Major Spoilers Crew takes a look at Capote in Kansas from Oni Press.

Murder. Not intricately plotted “whodunit.” Not fiery passionate fury. But dirty, sad, disturbing actions from real people.

That’s what Truman Capote decided to use for In Cold Blood – his bold experiment in the realm of the non-fiction “novel.” Following in that legacy is Capote in Kansas, a fictionalized tale of Capote’s time in Middle America researching his classic book. Capote’s struggles with the town, the betrayal, and his own troubled past make this book a compelling portrait of one of the greatest literary talents of the 20th century.

    Wow. That’s timely. I just checked out the book “In Cold Blood” from the local library based on a friend’s recommendation. This podcast couldn’t come at a better time for me! Another way MSP just gets it right :-)
