Day 32…Other Voices, Other Rooms

Another amazing Southern Gothic novel!

When I think of Truman Capote, I think of Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Of course, that is a perfectly charming novella.

Then I remember he wrote the true crime novel In Cold Blood a groundbreaking book that changed the way crimes are covered.

But I had never heard of Other Voices, Other Rooms, It is required reading for my Southern Gothic Literature class.

(By the way, I am LOVING this class! It is fantastic!)

This book has all the prerequisites for a good Southern drama…his father left them, his mother died…there’s a apathetic step-mother, a decaying Southern mansion, an eccentric cousin…hopelessness and bleakness.

An unblinking view of Southern flaws, this is not an easy read…but it is worth it.
