Works by
Truman Capote

[1924 - 1984]

Profile created July 6, 2005
  • Other Voices, Other Rooms (1948)

  • The Grass Harp (1951; play, 1952)
    Set on the outskirts of a small Southern town, The Grass Harp tells the story of three endearing misfits--an orphaned boy and two whimsical old ladies--who one day take up residence in a tree house. AS they pass sweet yet hazardous hours in a china tree, The Grass Harp manages to convey all the pleasures and responsibilities of freedom. But most of all it teaches us about the sacredness of love, "that love is a chain of love, as nature is a chain of life."

  • Breakfast at Tiffany's (1958)
    Movie (1961) DVD VHS with Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard

  • In Cold Blood (1966)
    This "nonfiction novel" was a 6-year study of the murder of a rural Kansas family by two young drifters.
    Movie (1967) DVD VHS with Robert Blake

  • The Dogs Bark:  Public People and Private Places (1973)

  • Answered Prayers (1987)
    Unfinished novel that was published posthumously.

  • A House on the Heights (2002)
    The tranquil life Truman Capote led in the quiet enclave of Brooklyn Heights in the 1950s and 1960s stood in sharp contrast to the glittering scene he adored in Manhattan. Intimate and wry, A House on the Heights vividly evokes the neighborhood that Capote came to know well and described as one of Brooklyn’s “splendid contradictions.” Its denizens, including a celebrated Russian spy, a globe-trotting antiquarian, and a cat-rescuing dowager with a pointed social agenda bring to life the Brooklyn that cast its spell over Capote. In A House on the Heights he meanders through a special time and place still recognizable today.

  • A&E Biography - Truman Capote (2000)
    " His books are classics lyrical, witty and penetrating. His outrageous personality made him a darling of the social elite. Truman Capote's life was framed by loneliness and abandonment. In-between, he experienced success that few dream of. TRUMAN CAPOTE chronicles the life of the man who burst onto the literary scene at the tender age of 23 with the moving Other Voices, Other Rooms. Follow ""the tiny terror"" from his troubled childhood he was abandoned by his parents and raised by relatives in the Alabama backwoods to his days of glory, cavorting with the likes of Babe and Bill Paley and Katharine Graham. Friends and former friends, including Graham, George Plimpton and Joanne Carson, recall his outrageous wit, brutal honesty and personal demons. Excerpts from novels like In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany's demonstrate his genius, while extensive footage and photos show him at work and play. BIOGRAPHY proudly presents the story of a brilliant writer who never pulled his punches and occasionally hit himself."
