    In 2001, The Little Bookroom published Truman Capote's long-out-of-print homage to Brooklyn,A House in the Heights. In 2014, more than fifty years after they were taken, the original photographs commissioned to illustrate the piece have been discovered by the photographer's son. Also found among the negatives were portraits of Capote taken on that same day; none of the photos have ever been published. Now, in a new edition with a new title,Brooklyn: A Personal Memoir With the lost photographs of David Attie, the words and images will be united for the first time.The images of Brooklyn provide a stunning and atmospheric visual portrait of the city in 1959--its building, shops, street life, lost moments-- a Brooklyn at once strangely familiar yet largely vanished: horse-drawn wagons delivering produce to housewives, kids swimming in the East River and getting into mischief on the docks, dimly-lit bars, vintage signs, little girls jumping rope, bricklayers, barbers, neighborhood characters, all set against a backdrop of period architecture, that spectacular bridge, and the skyline of Manhattan.The essay itself brings to life the landscape that was for the author a world of grand homes and dimly recalled gentility, of mysterious warehouses and menacing street thugs, a garden overhung with wisteria, and the famous Promenade and waterfront--all rendered in his deft and stylish prose. Originally commissioned for Holiday magazine by John Knowles (later the author of A Separate Peace), the piece remained one of his favorites--especially its surprise ending.At the time, George Plimpton wrote that in the essay, Capote's "love of history, gossip, character, and a skill at putting all this to words...brings Brooklyn Heights to life as vividly as any landscape Truman ever undertook to survey." David Attie's photos enhance that landscape in a breathtaking way.

In Cold Blood is a work that transcends its moment, yielding poignant insights into the nature of American violence.From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Truman Capote’s masterpiece, In Cold Blood, created a sensation when it was first published, serially, in The New Yorker in 1965. The intensively researched, atmospheric narrative of the lives of the Clutter family of Holcomb, Kansas, and of the two men, Richard Eugene Hickock and Perry Edward Smith, who brutally killed them on the night of November 15, 1959, is the seminal work of the “new journalism.” Perry Smith is one of the great dark characters of American literature, full of contradictory emotions. “I thought he was a very nice gentleman,” he says of Herb Clutter. “Soft-spoken. I thought so right up to the moment I cut his throat.” Told in chapters that alternate between the Clutter household and the approach of Smith and Hickock in their black Chevrolet, then between the investigation of the case and the killers’ flight, Capote’s account is so detailed that the reader comes to feel almost like a participant in the events.

    Capote's first novel is a story of almost supernatural intensity and inventiveness, an audacious foray into the mind of a sensitive boy as he seeks out the grown-up enigmas of love and death in the ghostly landscape of the deep South. At the age of twelve, Joel Knox is summoned to meet the father who abandoned him at birth. But when Joel arrives at the decaying mansion in Skully's Landing, his father is nowhere in sight. What he finds instead is a sullen stepmother who delights in killing birds; an uncle with the face - and heart - of a debauched child; and a fearsome little girl named Idabel who may offer him the closest thing he has ever known to love. 231p.
