Truman Capote s Nonfiction Novel In Cold Blood and Bennett Miller s Biopic Capote Book Description :

Examination Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Freiburg, language: English, abstract: When In Cold Blood was first published, critics had a hard time categorizing the book.
