Thema: »Truman Capote«

Truman Capote - geboren als Truman Streckfus Persons
(* 30. September 1924; † 25. August 1984) war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller, Schauspieler und Drehbuchautor.
Berühmt wurde er mit »Frühstück bei Tiffany« und »Kaltblütig« - mit letzterem erhob er gleich ein ganzes Genre, den Tatsachenroman, zu einer anerkannten literarischen Gattung. Sein exzessives Leben, sein sarkastischer Humor und sein offen schwules Auftreten machten ihn zu einer schillernden Gestalt.

This outlaw originality is what most astonishes ... Weiterlesen
