First and Last | Truman Capote
post image

I just finished Heavy Time by C.J. Cherryh, so that's my last book of 2019. My first book of 2020 will be Canticle, Book One of the Cleric Quintet, by R.A. Salvatore.

I love old books... something beautiful about the smell and feel of the old pages! This old copy was a perfect match to the musty old feel of Skully‘s Landing and the amazing tattered, beautiful and dimensional characters of this story. Loved it! Merry Christmas!

Love this. One of the best little passages ever... merry Christmas Eve! Hope you all have someone to love and hold and tell you Everything is going to be all right.

Thanks for the tag @Stacypatrice 🤗

1. Truman Capote
2. If I could please have an invitation to his famous black and white ball in 1966. 🤓 If I were alive back then of course. Then I would ask him about his friendship with Harper Lee and his experience writing In Cold Blood.
3. Probably around 1,200 if you count all my Sweet Valley books. Not 100% sure 😬

SomedayAlmost Wow, now I wish I had talked to him, too! 3mo
JenlovesJT47 @SomedayAlmost he was such an interesting person! The book that started my obsession with him was the historical fiction 3mo

GingerAntics That first question alone is going to take some thought... 3mo
marleed Haha. My IRL Sept Book was the Dinner List so of course we came prepared with the 5 people living or dead to come to your dinner party. My non-family dinner guest was Babe Pacey. No one knew who she was. So I explained she was Truman Capote‘s favorite swan. I just love a night with and her thoughts on social media. 3mo
JenlovesJT47 @marleed I loved that book! And I love Babe Paley, such an interesting person. I need to get that biography about her and her sisters from the library soon! 3mo
JenlovesJT47 @SomedayAlmost I‘m going to have to find me a copy of this! 2mo

IamIamIam You are literally the only other person I've ever found to own this book!!!!! 😂 It's one of my all time favorites!!!! 3mo
LeahBergen @IamIamIam Really?? 😆 I guess I‘d better read it soon then (I love Capote)! 3mo
IamIamIam @LeahBergen I had a teacher give this to me in 11th grade. It was so beyond me at that time but I loved the richness of the characters. Every time I read it, I get something new out of it. ❤ 3mo
Chrissyreadit In Cold Blood amazed me, and I loved A Christmas Memory. 3mo

Music For Chameleons | Truman Capote

“Handcarved Coffins” is a memorably vivid & creepy “nonfiction” true crime piece by Truman Capote in this collection of well-written essays and articles. Do not read this if you are afraid of snakes, or delicious hyperbole! Pictured is my copy, complete with notes deconstructing the piece by an overzealous grad student who looked like me. 😉🎃 #coffins #capote #truecrime #TeamSlaughter #ChillingPhotoChallenge @Clwojick

Bookwormjillk Thanks for the warning! I am VERY afraid of snakes! 4mo

I first read about Capote‘s 1966 Black & White Ball in the historical fiction, Swans of Fifth Ave. Now I can‘t get enough of 40s-60s NYC. I‘m fascinated by Babe Paley, Slim Keith, Gloria Guinness and their cigarette-smoking, lunch-in-the-city, weekend-in-the-Hamptons world. They were the OG RHONY!

The Grass Harp | Truman Capote

#wanderingjune #greengreengrassofhome

I‘m so glad for this prompt @BarbaraBB because I‘ve wanted to post this book for ages but this is the first time it fits a prompt. I love this story so much so my husband bought me this UK first edition (calling @LeahBergen #firsteditionqueen 😘) ten years or more ago. It‘s about an orphaned boy living with his elderly aunts - ⬇️

Centique one day after a family argument, he and one aunt make a moral stand by moving to live in the big old tree he loves to play in. 8mo
Kaye One of my favorite books. Very neat copy ! 8mo
Centique @Kaye thanks! I‘m glad I‘m not the only one who loves this 😍 8mo
