… Tru Life | Humanities. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
The summer after I finished college, I had a job that kept me on the campus, and one day I borrowed from the library Capote's first novel, Other Voices, Other Rooms. I started reading it on my way home — a long ride on two buses and the subway-elevated. By the time I got home I had nearly finished it. It is wondrously written. As the quotes in this article demonstrate, Capote wrote extremely well. And that is what he should be remembered for.
