Meet the Author

Truman Capote (1924-1984) nació en Nueva Orleans (Luisiana). Estudió en el Trinity School y la St John’s Academy de Nueva York. A los veintitrés años publicó su primera novela, Otras voces, otros ámbitos (1948), que obtuvo un éxito extraordinario. Entre sus obras podemos mencionar Un árbol de la noche y otros cuentos (1949), El arpa de hierba (1951), Se oyen las musas (1956) y Desayuno en Tiffany’s (1958). Su libro más famoso, reeditado en Debolsillo,es A sangre fría (1966), una “novela-documento” que relata el asesinato, sin motivo aparente, de los cuatro miembros de una familia de Garden City, Kansas, llevada al cine en 1967 por Richard Brooks. Capote es también autor de una colección de ensayos titulada Música para camaleones (1980), y del guion para el musical Casa de las flores (1954). Asimismo colaboró en la escenografía de la película La burla del diablo (1954). Su obra fue aclamada por la crítica por su virtuosismo técnico y la agudeza de sus observaciones. En 1987 apareció Plegarias atendidas, su esperada novela póstuma. Fue galardonado en dos ocasiones con el Premio O’Henry para relatos, fue miembro del National Institute of Arts and Letters y ha quedado consagrado como uno de los grandes escritores contemporáneos.

Biography

Truman Capote was a native of New Orleans, where he was born on September 30, 1924. His first novel, Other Voices, Other Rooms, was an international literary success when first published in 1948, and accorded the author a prominent place among the writers of America's postwar generation. He sustained this position subsequently with short-story collections (A Tree of Night, among others), novels and novellas (The Grass Harp and Breakfast at Tiffany's), some of the best travel writing of our time (Local Color), profiles and reportage that appeared originally in The New Yorker (The Duke in His Domain and The Muses Are Heard), a true-crime masterpiece (In Cold Blood), several short memoirs about his childhood in the South (A Christmas Memory, The Thanksgiving Visitor, and One Christmas), two plays (The Grass Harp and House of Flowers and two films (Beat the Devil and The Innocents).

Mr. Capote twice won the O.Henry Memorial Short Story Prize and was a member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters. He died in August 1984, shortly before his sixtieth birthday.
