Truman Capote’s Biography

Born as Truman Streckfus Persons, son of Lillie Mae Faulk, he would adopt the surname of his mother’s second husband, Joe García Capote, a colonel and businessman from the Canary Islands who resided in Cuba.He lived on farms during his childhood from the south of the United States and, in his own words, began to write to mitigate the isolation suffered during his childhood. He studied at Trinity School and at St. John’s Academy in New York. When he was 17, he got a job for The New Yorker magazine, which consisted, according to him, in “selecting comic strips and cutting newspapers.” With 21 years leaves the magazine and publishes a series of stories: “Miriam”, “The headless hawk” and “Shut a final door”. The latter was rejected by Harper’s Bazaar and published in The Atlantic Monthly, which earned him the O. Henry Award. The critics applaud him without reservations and considers him a disciple of Poe. In 1948, at age 23, he published his first novel, Other voices, other areas, one of the first in which openly raised the issue of homosexuality. Other novels of his would be: The Grass Harp (1951) and The Muses are heard (1956), in addition to the famous Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1958), which would also be adapted to film by Blake Edwards, with Audrey Hepburn in the role of Holly Golightly.

In 1966 he writes In Cold Blood, which will be his most celebrated work. With it, he would coin the term non-fiction-novel, creating a reference for what would later be the new American journalism. The novel, published after 5 years of intense investigation, tells the real story of the murder of the Clutter family, and is taken to the movies in 1967 by Richard Brooks. More than three hundred thousand copies of the book would be sold, remaining on the list of New York Times best-selling books for thirty-seven weeks.

His relations with the cinema also extended to the writing of scripts, among which the one of Suspense! by Jack Clayton (1961) stands out. He even played a role in A Dessert Corpse (Robert Moore, 1976).

In the 1950s he resumed his journalistic activity, conducting interviews for Playboy magazine.

Capote died in Bel Air, Los Angeles, on August 25, 1984, at 59 years of liver cancer.
