I like to start each new year with an old favorite and this year I reread In Cold Blood. Truman Capote may be lauded as the father of true crime, but In Cold Blood reads more like a what-not-to-do-when-writing-a-true-crime-book book. It's better read as a character study of the complicated individual that was Truman Capote and the choices that drew him into an intimate connection with a murderer. Capote was a complicated man and In Cold Blood only complicates him further.

If you've ever thought "huh, I've been meaning to read this..." then here's the universe giving you an extra nudge!
