On Truman Capote Love and A-Team Hate

Truman Capote once said of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road, “That’s not writing! That’s typing!” Yeah, he was a real bitch sometimes. However:

1. I admire In Cold Blood very much,

2. found his biography tragic yet inspiring,

3. loved both the Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Toby Young movies

4. and yearn for the good old days when a flamboyantly gay and genuinely wild character could be high on a nationally syndicated talk show and make Dick Cavett squirm.  

They don’t build literary figures like Truman Capote anymore.


As Hannibal said, “I love it when a plan comes together.”* **

*If you catch the old reference, your childhood was wasted, too.

**If you catch the new reference, you’ve recently wasted a couple of hours at the movie theater.
