Capote's Southern gothic at its finest, Other Voices Other Rooms draws from some of the tragedies and misadventures of Capote's own childhood. "At the age of 12, Joel Knox is summoned to meet the father who abandoned him at birth. But when he arrives at the decaying mansion at Skully's Landing, his father is nowhere in sight. What he finds instead is a sullen stepmother who delights in killing birds; an uncle with the face and heart of a debauched child, and a fearsome little girl named Idabel who may offer him the closest thing he's known to love" (International Edition). Fine in Very Good + dust jacket. (Item #4715)
