I enjoyed this book, but I will qualify my review in that I‘m not sure I would have enjoyed it as much completely on its own. I started it immediately after In Cold Blood and the chapters about Lee‘s research with Capote on that case and his writing were the most interesting to me. The other case was interesting, but there really isn‘t a full resolution, to the case or the story of her own true crime book.

Daisey @JazzFeathers I have about 30 pages left and hope to make time for them today. I‘m not sure I would say I enjoyed all of it, but I can appreciate it and am glad to have read it. 2w

Chapter 18 is all about the time Lee spent with Capote doing research for In Cold Blood. According to this chapter, at the end of their time in Kansas she provided him with over 150 pages of detailed notes, much of this being information he may not have been able to gather on his own from people more inclined to talk to her than to him.

Daisey @merelybookish @batsy @Texreader @readordierachel @Suet624 Thought you might be specifically interested in this detail. 2w
Daisey Chapter 20 mentions inaccuracies and fictionalized aspects of In Cold Blood. (edited) 2w
charl08 I don't understand why she didn't get a writing credit. 2w

Daisey @charl08 This book also mentions that Lee did not appreciate Capote‘s straying from the facts of the the story. It makes me wonder if maybe that played a part. 2w
merelybookish Wow! That's no small contribution! Any idea who might have talked to her and not him? (It did interest me to imagine the response to aesthete eccentric Capote in Holcomb society.) 2w
Daisey @merelybookish I tagged you in my previous post that has excerpted material from the book. It sums up any other quotes I would share pretty well. 2w
readordierachel That's practically a book right there! 2w
batsy That's a pretty substantial contribution! I agree with @charl08 it feels like a co-authored book. I'm definitely going to have to read this soon! 2w
Daisey @readordierachel @batsy Absolutely! From the description, these were also very detailed notes and even included diagrams. Additionally, I found it interesting she took notes during the trial, but he did not. 2w

This was a gripping read. It‘s one of those books that make you really think about the meaning behind it. At first I was a little confused in the beginning of it, but then as I read more and more of it the more it made me think. It made me think about judging others and what makes a decent human being. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
