I loved these short stories! They were interesting, thought provoking, and gave a glimpse into what Capote's world looked like. Should have bought this book.
the biggest attraction to this collection is "Handcarved Coffins", an excellent account of serial killing in a small town. by turns mysterious, frustrating, tense, and bizarre, the accounting details Capote's relationship with the FBI agent assigned to the case, who has in turn romantically assigned...
My notes say I found this book to be quite bizarre, as though Capote hallucinated some of the events that took place. A disappointment for me.
