In these gems of reportage Truman Capote takes true stories and real people and renders then with the stylistic brio we expect from great fiction. Here we encounter an exquisitely preserved Creole aristocrat sipping absinthe in her Martinique salon; an enigmatic killer who sends his victims announcements of their forthcoming demise; and a proper Connecticut householder with a ruinous obsession for a twelve-year-old girl he has never met. And we meet Capote himself, who, whether he is smoking with his cleaning lady or trading sexual gossip with Marilyn Monroe, remains one of the most elegant, malicious, yet compassionate writers to train his eye on the social fauna of our time.… (mere)

    Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams: Short Stories, Prose, and Diary Excerpts af Sylvia Plath (sweetiegherkin)
    sweetiegherkin: The writing styles aren't identical, but these are both lesser known works by well-known authors. They are both full of shorter works, especially a number of observational pieces drawn from the authors' own lives. Of course, with Plath that's a lot of English countryside / visiting neighbors type things, while with Capote it's interviewing convicted murderers and hobnobbing with celebrity pals. But both books give insight into the author's art and their particular writing style (poetic for Plath and journalistic for Capote).… (mere)

I enjoyed these short stories. Such a unique writing style.. and so much detail of growing up
In the south an added bonus. ( )

Capote en su etapa más confesional, más humana. Siempre deja al lector preguntándose cuánto de esto habrá vivido y cuánto se inventa. El recurso anecdótico le permite crear cuentos perfectamente redondos y conmovedores. Sobresaltan, deleitan e intrigan. No se puede pedir nada más. ( )

Loved this collection of short stories so much!

“Some cities, like wrapped boxes under Christmas trees, conceal unexpected gifts, secret delights. Some cities will always remain wrapped boxes, containers of riddles never to be solved nor even to be seen by vacationing visitors, or, for that matter, the most inquisitive, persistent travelers. To know such cities, to unwrap them, as it were, one has to have been born there.”

“She was a woman with a good and varied mind; intelligence illuminated her hazel eyes like the small lamp shining on the table beside her.”

“We can’t have secrets today. Today is a day of sorrow, and sorrowers share their innermost thoughts.”

“Our real fears are the sound of footsteps walking in the corridors of our minds, and the anxieties, the phantom floatings, they create.”

“A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue. That’s why there are so few good conversations: due to scarcity, two intelligent talkers seldom meet.” ( )

Capote en su etapa de mayor madurez artística. Una prosa muy bien cuidada nos conduce con suavidad por todos estos relatos y textos autobiográficos que a veces resultan bastante íntimos. Este es otro Capote, muy distinto al que conocí en 'A sangre fría'. Todos los textos incluidos son de alta calidad y se disfrutan, pero el central, 'Ataúdes tallados a mano", es particularmente entretenido. Lo recomiendo. ( )
