Although much is known about the mature Truman Capote - his literary genius and flamboyant life-style - details of his childhood years spent in Monroeville, Alabama, have remained a mystery. ""Truman Capote's Southern Years"" explores Capote's formative years, the abandonment by his mother, and his early life in the care of elderly relatives. In Monroeville young Capote formed significant bonds and played childhood games with his cousin, Jennings Faulk Carter, and next door neighbour, Nelle Harper Lee. Through the tales told here by Carter, readers discover the lively imagination and the early tragedies of a brilliant child.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A significant contribution to the social history of the era, Truman Capote's "Southern Years" is delightfully entertaining reading. While we will never know all the reasons for Capote's self-destructive nature, Truman Capote's"Southern Years" gives us some insight into how and why Capote became what he was, both good and bad." "Southern Living""
"The young Truman Capote who emerges from these amusing recollections is quick-witted, scheming, mercurial, and a born leader in mischievous escapades." "Publisher's Weekly""
