The Early Stories of Truman Capote
The Early Stories of Truman Capote by Truman Capote (Other Fiction)
Very good stories, interesting to read after a biography. One can see his tremendous talent for description and storytelling as well as note what influenced him as a writer. A very impressive collection of stories from a young writer. -- Added by passionack on 02/02/2016

The Mockingbird Next Door
The Mockingbird Next Door by Marja Mills (Other Nonfiction)
An extremely rare look into the life of Nelle Harper Lee, author of "To Kill a Mockingbird." Mills earned unprecedented access to Lee, who had stopped giving interviews. She is able to answer many questions and give Lee's side of the story, setting the record straight on many accounts including the rumor that Truman Capote wrote the famous novel. The content here is priceless, getting to know Lee's day to day life and what she thought of the impact of her book and the frenzy around it. This is Mills' first book and it shows in places with overlapping stories and lots of repetition. The structure feels patchwork"y" in places. Very respectfully done in regards to the wishes of the Lee sisters but one might wish the author had not become so much of the story herself but got more content from her enviable vantage point. -- Added by passionack on 01/30/2016

Everybody Rise
Everybody Rise by Stephanie Clifford (Other Fiction)
An amusing and fun romp through the life of the beautiful people just before the crash of 2008. The heroine climbs high, falls hard and creates her own redemption. Easy read although I would have enjoyed the same story with more depth and meat on the bone. -- Added by passionack on 01/30/2016

An' The Gobble-ins'll Git You Ef You Don't Watch Out: James Whitcomb Riley's Little Orphant Annie
An' The Gobble-ins'll Git You Ef You Don't Watch Out: James Whitcomb Riley's Little Orphant Annie by James Whitcomb Riley (Other Fiction)
Humor and mischief seep through this wonderfully rhyming tale. Riley's ear for dialect is spot on and reminiscent of old country relatives I met in childhood. He captures that time well. -- Added by passionack on 01/30/2016
