  1. In 1935, at an early age of 11, Capote began writing The first novel that he attempted to write was Summer Crossing but one day, while he and a fellow southerner and writer Carlson McCullers, the author of The Heart is a Lonely Hunter 1940 , were walking in the woods, he got inspired to write something about the rural life in the South So, he set Summer Crossing aside and wrote this book This then became his first published book 1948 when Capote was 24 years old The style is Southern Gothic and [...]


  2. my favorite quotes l his prayers of the past had been simple concrete requests God, give me a bicycle, a knife with seven blades, a box of oil paints Only how, how, could you say something so indefinite, so meaningless as this God, let me be loved few of us learn that love is tenderness, and tenderness is not, as a fair proportion suspect, pity and still fewer know that happiness in love is not the absolute focusing of all emotion in another one has always to love a good many things which the be [...]


  3. Other Voices, Other Rooms Capote s Swamp Baroque Concerto in Three MovementsOther Voices, Other Rooms was an attempt to exorcise demons, an unconscious, altogether intuitive attempt, for I was not aware, except for a few incidents and descriptions, of its being in any serious degree autobiographical Rereading it now, I find such self deception unpardonable Truman Capote, The Dogs Bark, New York, Random House, 1973First Edition Having just re read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, I returned t [...]


  4. Truman Capote is currently my favorite writer The poetic fashion in which he brings a novel to life is extraordinary and I hope he can continue to impress me He introduces his characters in a perfect order, and they are people you want to know about The only drawback to this book, his first novel, is that he assumed I understood where he was going at every turn, and I didn t I wanted a big ending that made we want to start the book over from the beginning I didn t get it.


  5. Truman Capote s Other Voices, Other Rooms is of a raising yourself through experiences and colored glasses green, red, rose, purple, the whole over the rainbow spectrum world views than coming of age The painful growth into what you think you are, and who you really are I m and irritated with coming of age tag these days, since I can t accept that there s this point where one comes to this point, and then you re done It s like stops and starts, backwards and forwards, all mixed together conf [...]


  6. Other Voices, Other Rooms by Truman CapoteBook Review by Jay GilbertsonThis is maybe the eighth, could be the ninth time I ve read this amazing little novel and I know for certain I ll read it again one day Billed as Capote s first, and in my opinion his best work, Other Voices, Other Rooms is truly an amazing piece of literature and still haunts me today The author took a classic coming of age theme and carefully, subtly and with fascinatingly flawed characters ripped it to smithereens The stor [...]


  7. Southern Gothic on steroids and or mushrooms During a recent re read of To Kill a Mockingbird I learned that Harper Lee and Truman Capote were childhood friends and that each of them had based a character in their novels on each other In To Kill a Mockingbird, Ms Lee based Dill Harris on Mr Capote and in Other Voices, Other Rooms Mr Capote based Idabel Thompkins on Ms Lee They both describe these quirky characters so affectionately that the affection became contagious for me Maybe it isn t surpr [...]

  9. It wasn t until after seeing Capote excellent film, by the by that I got the itch to read something by the film s namesake Thus far my first choice, In Cold Blood, has been checked out every time I ve gone to the library, so I settled instead for his first novel, Other Voices, Other Rooms I was not surprised to see the young protagonist, Joel, as a reflection of Capote himself What did interest me, however, was that in the twenty fifth anniversary edition I was reading, Capote wrote a forward in [...]


  10. Why is it that when I find a book worthy of five stars I m at a loss for words, and can t write anything sensible about it Well, let s just say that I fell head over heels with Capote after this one One hundred percent skill than his friend Harper Lee The way Capote uses words is simple yet it creates a strong sense of place The lack of plot doesn t really matter for me personally, because there s everything I could ever need from a Southern Gothic novel Eccentric characters, ambiguous sexualit [...]


  11. Pot afirma cu stupoare peiorativ , c Truman Capote nu este unul din autorii moderni care impresioneaz Cel pu in nu prin acest volum Din punctul meu de vedere, nu i merit faima Compar nd opera lui cu cea a lui William Styron ori merg nd un strop napoi cu cea a lui Hemingway, Capote nu este o figura proeminent a literaturii americane Repet nu prin acest roman.


  12. Bellissimo romanzo di formazione, disseminato di riferimenti autobiografici, che l autore riveste di una fitta rete di simboli di innegabile fascino Il viaggio del tredicenne Joel Harrison Knox verso un luogo sperduto nella campagna del profondo Sud degli Stati Uniti, per incontrare il padre che non conosce, innanzi tutto la toccante vicenda di un adolescente assetato di affetti insieme, per , anche una rappresentazione paradigmatica del processo di crescita, ovvero dell abbandono definitivo del [...]


  13. You know Truman Capote s famous quote about how he felt that he and Perry Smith grew up in the same house, and then one day he got up and walked out through the front door, while Perry left out the back Also, you know the unnecessary speculation that Capote actually wrote his friend Harper Lee s To Kill a Mockingbird I really enjoyed this book with its odd, closely observed detail and gothic, Southern, open claustrophobia Still, it kind of feels like this book and To Kill a Mockingbird incubated [...]

Un filo d ambiguit serpeggia tra fantasmi da combattere e vincere, a da trovare e vivere A Skully s Landing, sospeso in un limbo, tra sogno e realt , il giovane Joel inizia la sua ricerca, il suo percorso di crescita e rinascita Pagine belle e intense Intime e profonde Per Ho qualche perplessit sulla traduzione Mi rendo conto che il romanzo uscito in America nel 1948 fu tradotto e pubblicato l anno successivo in Italia Probabilmente il traduttore lavor sotto pressione e con tempi stretti Tuttavi [...]




  15. Other Voices, Other Rooms is a coming of age novel but I felt there was no real plot or point I struggled to understand what was happening for half the novel I d finally feel I got to grips with it and understood what was happening, only to turn the page and feel lost all over again I feel like this novel was meant to be a profound piece of literature but it felt a bit like Capote tried too hard, tried to be too poetic and mysterious and totally lost me, as a reader, along the way.My favourite p [...]


  16. The windows of the house are cracked and shattered, hollow as eyeless sockets a rotted balcony leans perilously forward, and yellow sunflower birds hide their nests in its secret places the scaling outer walls are ragged with torn, weather faded posters that flutter when there is a wind Among the town kids it is a sign of great valor to enter these black rooms after dark and signal with a match flame from a window on the topmost floor Although Other Voices, Other Rooms doesn t feature anything s [...]



  17. Nach dem Tod seiner Mutter reist der sensible und ein wenig feminine dreizehnj hrige Joel von New Orleans ins Kaff Noon City, um dort bei seinem Vater zu leben, den er seit seinem ersten Lebensjahr nicht gesehen hat Der Familiensitz Skully s Landing ist eine Mischung aus dem verzauberten Garten und dem Haus Usher Das ehemals pr chtige Anwesen verf llt in pittoresker Sch nheit und auch seine Bewohner sind nur Schatten einer fernen Vergangenheit Da ist Joels Stiefmutter Amy, nerv s und theatralisc [...]


  18. 2.5Once again, Capotes writing is masterful Unfortunately, the quality of writing wasn t enough to merit a high rating This story of a young man going home to meet his father among a group of eclectic characters had a lot of potential, but ultimately, the story went nowhere I had the sense that Truman was leaning too hard on an artsy fartsy style and the result was a book that failed to entertain me.


  19. Possibly the spookiest aspect of this unsettling novel is the knowledge you bring to it Capote was only 23 24 when he wrote it, and yet he exists in two of its autobiographical characters Joel, the young teenager, and his uncle Randolph, the theatrical, narcissistic, unstable alcoholic that prefigures the role Capote would play in his own life Or so it struck me.Gerald Clarke wrote that one of the novel s themes was the loneliness that afflicts all but the stupid or insensitive, and that rings v [...]


  20. Before the drinking, the fame, the chaos, and the loss, Capote wrote this amazing novel about a boy s journey into manhood This work ranks as one of the best with some amazing peripheral images A strange classic not designed for the fandom crowd.


  21. People under the impression the discussion of gender and sexuality is a new thing are so wrong And this book wasn t some underground gem that s simmered on the back burner, like so much LGBTQ fiction It makes you wonder if we ve gone backward, because this was a huge hit when it was published in 1948, vaulting Truman Capote into the stratosphere I have loved Truman Capote since the 90 s, when I finally read In Cold Blood and The Grass Harp, but I didn t re read this which I read in high school j [...]


  22. What in the hell did I just read I guess this is a bildungsroman of sorts, but it s missing the bil and sroman, and you can see what we re left with A very strange book I heard that the character of Idabel was based on Truman Capote s real life childhood friend Harper Lee, and that Dill in To Kill a Mockingbird was based on Truman It all sounded like fun, so I checked it out Now that I m done with it Well, it bears repeating What in the hell did I just read Stand by while I consult the internet [...]

  25. Truman Capote s novel is so beautifully written that I found it hard to believe it was his first There is a lyrical, dancing quality to his writing, like sunlight dancing on waves, that carries you along, e.g He lay there on a bed of cold pebbles, the cool water washing, rippling over him he wished he were a leaf, like the current carried leaves riding past leaf boy, he would float lightly away, float and fade into a river, an ocean, the world s greatest flood His descriptions of his characters [...]


  26. This is my first Truman Capote book read Although it was almost 2 years ago I remember the book like it was yesterday The fact that this was his first actually second Summer Crossing book shocks me because of the maturity and clarvoyence that comes through his writing, his words are a seperate art form that feels as though it s only meant for a select few Luckily I feel like one of those few because I was automatically drawn to his style of prose and his effectivness in word usage He can make a [...]
