I had some short stories, poems and photographs to share ... and so here I am

The Truman Show

If I was wearing five hats I would take them all off to Philip Seymour Hoffman for his latest silver screen performance as Truman Capote. What a triumph! How did he manage to get things so spot on?

I happened upon a TV documentary on the life of Capote right after seeing Hoffman's interpretation and I have to tell you that my chin was on the floor!

The film has reminded me to order In Cold Blood - another easy click over the Internet. I've read only extracts of the book before and now is the time to put the film in context.

Capote was such a figure, such a character, and it was sad to watch the unfolding of his life and its tragic end.
