How Could I Forget?

Just realized I left one of the best books ever off my list--In Cold Blood, by Truman Capote. I just never got around to reading it , and I finally did so.

What a genuine work of art. Gorgeous writing, masterful storytelling, brilliant. If you haven't read it, I urge you to do so. Even if you're not in the mood for a true story about murder, this book will grip you tightly and stay with you for a long time. Capote was one of a kind. I never thought of him as an artist--only as a weirdo, frankly. I have changed my mind. I can't wait to read more of his work.
