T. S. Persons


Banned Book Week begins on the birthday of frequently banned American novelist Truman S. Persons Capote one time boyhood next door neighbor to Nelle Harper Lee.  Best known for his novel In Cold Blood, Truman was also an extraordinary short story writer (which I prefer to his novels).  If you doubt me reread Breakfast at Tiffany's.

I can never hear the name Truman Capote without remembering a bit on the old Mary Tyler Moore show:

Ted Baxter is demanding better writers and he says they should get "that Truman Capot fellow". Phyllis tries to correct him by saying just "E". Ted then says "oh yeah, Truman E. Capot"
