First edition of Capote’s seductive, wistful masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “For Albert J. Raman good wishes Truman Capote.” The recipient was an attorney and well-known book collector. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Ismar David. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very nice example.
"Truman Capote is the most perfect writer of my generation. He writes the best sentences word for word, rhythm upon rhythm. If you want to capture a period in New York, no other book has done it so well. He could capture period and place like few others" (Norman Mailer). The film adaptation was directed by Blake Edwards, starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard.
