Truman Capote

Truman Capote (30 September 192425 August 1984) was an American writer whose stories, novels, plays, and non-fiction are recognized 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.

My favorite line in Breakfast at Tiffany's;

"They've had the old clap-yo'-hands so many times it amounts to applause."
