Truman Capote's Southern Years
Stories from a Monroeville Cousin 25th Anniversary edition
Truman Capote's Southern Years by Marianne M. Moates
Book DescriptionReaders are well acquainted with Truman Capote's meteoric rise to fame and his metamorphosis from literary enfant terrible to literary genius, celebrity author, and dispenser of venomously comic witticisms. It is also well-known that he spent his formative years in the south Alabama hamlet of Monroeville, and that he was abandoned there by his mother to be cared for and then to care for elderly relatives. Yet details of those years have remained sketchy and vague. In Monroeville young Capote formed significant bonds and played childhood games with his cousin, Jennings Faulk Carter, and next door neighbor, Nelle Harper Lee. Through the tales told by Carter and spun into a fascinating and revealing narrative by Marianne M. Moates readers discover in Truman Capote's Southern Years the lively imagination and the early tragedies of a brilliant child. A new foreword by Ralph F. Voss underscores the enduring relevance of Truman Capote's work and the influence his Alabama childhood had on his work.
