“Much ink has been spilled” over the rise and fall of this “brilliant and troubled author of groundbreaking books like ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ and ‘In Cold Blood'”, said Vanity Fair. Now 40 years after his death, he “returns to the zeitgeist as the bleeding and bloated heart” at the centre of Ryan Murphy’s Disney+ anthology series “Feud: Capote vs. The Swans”.
