Too brief a treat : the letters of Truman Capote ; edited by Gerald Clarke by Truman Capote( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Too Brief a Treat, the biographer Gerald Clarke brings together for the first time the private letters of Truman Capote. Spanning more than four decades, these letters reveal the inner life of one of the twentieth century's most intriguing personalities. As Clarke notes in his Introduction, Capote was an inveterate correspondent who both loved and craved love without inhibition. He wrote letters as he spoke: emphatically, spontaneously, and passionately. He also wrote them at a breakneck pace, unconcerned with posterity. Thus, in this volume we have perhaps the closest thing possible to an elusive treasure: a Capote autobiography." "Through his letters to the likes of William Styron and Gloria Vanderbilt, as well as to his publishers and editors, his longtime companion and lover Jack Dunphy, and others, we see Capote in all his life's phases - the uncannily self-possessed naif who jumped headlong into the dynamic post-World War II New York literary scene, and the more mature, established Capote of the 1950s. Then there is the Capote of the early 1960s, immersed in the research and writing of his masterpiece, In Cold Blood. Capote's correspondence with Kansas detective Alvin Dewey, and with Perry Smith, one of the killers profiled in that work, demonstrates the writer's intense devotion to his craft, while his letters to friends like Cecil Beaton show Capote giddy with his emergence as a flamboyant mass-media celebrity following In Cold Blood's publication. Finally, we see Capote later in his life, as things seemed to be unraveling: disillusioned, isolated by his substance abuse and by personal rivalries. (Ever effusive with praise and affection, Capote could nevertheless carry a grudge like few others.)"--Jacket

Capote by Bennett Miller( Visual )

35 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1959, le romancier et journaliste Truman Capote lit un entrefilet dans le New York Times sur le meurtre d'une famille d'agriculteurs du Kansas. Il persuade l'éditeur du magazine The New Yorker qu'il s'agit là d'un excellent sujet de reportage et, en compagnie de son amie d'enfance, la romancière Nelle Harper Lee, se rend dans cette contrée isolée. Pendant leur séjour, les deux meurtriers, Perry Smith et Richard Hickock, sont arrêtés. Capote réussit à les interroger et développe une véritable fascination pour Perry. Ce qui lui inspire un livre qu'il intitule "In Cold Blood". Afin de nourrir son ouvrage, Capote apporte son soutien aux meurtriers. Mais le report de leur condamnation à mort l'empêche de terminer son livre, ce qui le plonge dans un profond état dépressif

Une biographie à l'américaine qui, selon Folch-Ribas, se lit avec passion, mais qui est centrée sur la toute petite histoire: "Capote au jour le jour, pris en filature par un inépuisable et épuisant détective" (F. Vitoux). A. Rinaldi renchérit en soulignant la "méticulosité flicarde" de M. Clarke et son intérêt excessif pour les turpitudes du jet-set new-yorkais. A lire avec précautions

Truman Capote : a sangue freddo by Bennett Miller( Visual )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kansas, 1959. In una livida mattina di novembre una famiglia di agricoltori, i Clutter, vengono trovati assassinati nella loro fattoria. A New York, intanto, l'omicidio collettivo di Holcomb colpisce e ispira lo scrittore Truman Capote che parte per la cittadina del Kansas accompagnato dall'amica Harper Lee. A interessare lo scrittore sono le reazioni della provincia all'efferato delitto. Ma l'arresto improvviso di Dick Hickock e di Perry Smith, rei del crimine, trasforma la natura del progetto di Truman. Quello che doveva essere un servizio di cronaca da pubblicare su "The New Yorker" diventa il romanzo più ambizioso dello scrittore di New Orleans: "A Sangue freddo". Nei sei anni che separano i colpevoli dalla morte per impiccagione, Capote, intratterrà con almeno uno di loro, Smith, una fitta corrispondenza. (My movies)

Capote : [screenplay] by Dan Futterman( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1959, Truman Capote was a popular writer for The New Yorker. He learns about the horrific and senseless murder of a family of four in Halcomb, Kansas. Inspired by the story, Capote and his partner, Harper Lee, travel to the town to do research for an article. However, as Capote digs deeper into the story, he is inspired to expand the project into what would be his greatest work, "In Cold Blood." He arranges extensive interviews with the prisoners, especially with Perry Smith. However, his feelings of compassion for Perry conflicts with his need for closure for his book which only an execution can provide. That conflict and the mixed motives for both interviewer and subject make for a troubling experience that would produce an literary account that would redefine modern non-fiction
