A few weeks ago, we shared a post about a new, deluxe edition of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood.
The Guardian provided a straight-news look at the book that includes the author's drafts, notes, sketches, and other early papers.
And now, from Literary Hub, we have an emotional look at it, via an excerpt from the introduction.
In the foreword to the book, Ebs Burnough writes about the depths of the author's emotional involvement in the events and makes the case that Capote's masterpiece ultimately destroyed him.
