Sunday Feature - Literary Pursuits - Truman Capote: In Cold Blood - BBC Sounds

I was recently a featured guest on the BBC show “Literary Pursuits” about Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. It is a really interesting look at the book and the story of the Clutter murders—in case you are looking for a way to burn some time amid all this craziness. Of course, it was recorded in February when the world felt like a very different place.

The program starts at the 3:00 minute mark.
