Other Voices, Other Rooms

Author(s): Truman Capote

Fiction

When Joel Knox's mother dies, he is sent into the exotic unknown of the Deep South to live with a father he has never seen. But once he gets there, everyone is curiously evasive when Joel asks to see his father. Truman Capote's first novel, "Other Voices, Other Rooms" is a brilliant, searching study of homosexuality set in a shimmering landscape of heat, mystery and decadence.
