Read full description of the books Música para Camaleões:Um psicopata seguidor de Charles Manson em conversa entre cigarros na sua cela da prisão de San Quentin. Uma empregada de limpezas em visita pelas casas dos seus diversos clientes. Marilyn Monroe num funeral a partilhar mexericos sexuais. Uma elegante aristocrata crioula a tocar piano para camaleões num salão da Martinica. E, lado a lado com todos eles, Truman Capote com um olhar de lucidez implacável sobre a poesia e a violência da vida, num relato onde histórias e personagens reais se revelam com o brio estilístico da melhor ficção. Música para Camaleões reúne catorze contos que são, ao mesmo tempo, grande literatura e grande jornalismo, na linha do projeto de narrativa não-ficcional que o autor iniciara brilhantemente com A Sangue Frio. Publicada em 1980, esta foi a última grande obra lançada por Capote.
Read information about the authorTruman Capote was an American writer whose non-fiction, stories, novels and plays are recognised literary classics, including the novella Breakfast at Tiffany's (1958) and In Cold Blood (1965), which he labeled a "non-fiction novel." At least 20 films and TV dramas have been produced from Capote novels, stories and screenplays.
He was born as Truman Streckfus Persons to a salesman Archulus Persons and young Lillie Mae. His parents divorced when he was four and he went to live with his mother's relatives in Monroeville, Alabama. He was a lonely child who learned to read and write by himself before entering school. In 1933, he moved to New York City to live with his mother and her new husband, Joseph Capote, a Cuban-born businessman. Mr. Capote adopted Truman, legally changing his last name to Capote and enrolling him in private school. After graduating from high school in 1942, Truman Capote began his regular job as a copy boy at The New Yorker. During this time, he also began his career as a writer, publishing many short stories which introduced him into a circle of literary critics. His first novel, Other Voices, Other Rooms, published in 1948, stayed on The New York Times bestseller list for nine weeks and became controversial because of the photograph of Capote used to promote the novel, posing seductively and gazing into the camera.
In the 1950s and 1960s, Capote remained prolific producing both fiction and non-fiction. His masterpiece, In Cold Blood, a story about the murder of the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas, was published in 1966 in book form by Random House, became a worldwide success and brought Capote much praise from the literary community. After this success he published rarely and suffered from alcohol addiction. He died in 1984 at age 59.
