Abstract/Description

This paper in the genre of psycho-biography examines recent reports of fraud in Capote's work on the novel In Cold Blood. While my paper tackles the reasons why Capote's journalism may not have been sound, his traumatic love affairs, an inappropriate relationship to a case detective, and tragic childhood, it is not the purpose to tarnish a beloved author's reputation.
