Description

In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. One of the great masters of lyrical melancholy, Truman Capote remains admired for both his fiction including Breakfast at Tiffany's and the pioneering In Cold Blood, a non-fiction novel' telling the true story of a brutal murder. Penguin Modern Classics publish the full range of Capote's novels and short stories, and the tales in My Side of the Matter show to the full the blend of cynicism, humour and love that characterized his finest work.show more

Author information

Truman Capote was born in New Orleans in 1925 and had started writing short stories, some of which were published, by the age of fourteen. He left school at fifteen and subsequently worked for the New Yorker on what proved to be his first, and last, regular job. His first book, Other Voices, Other Rooms, was published in 1948 and he went on to write a number of highly praised books including The Grass Harp (1951), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1958) and In Cold Blood (1965) which became the centre of a storm of controversy on its publication. He died in August, 1984.show more
