Sage for a somewhat off-topic reply, but oh my God, I was trying to think of the name of a specific author (Capote) for an entire
day recently, before I gave up. Finding this name is indescribably satisfying. Thank you so much!
I read In Cold Blood
in high school, and the literature teacher I had was absolutely amazing (even if, or maybe somewhat because, she openly admitted to grading me more strictly than others), so I really enjoyed the book, on top of being able to discuss it in-depth and really get a better feel for all of its elements compared to my usual understanding of books that I read. That was a nice class.
