Capote boosts In Cold Blood book sales

Capote boosts In Cold Blood book sales

The acclaimed new film Capote, which chronicles gay writer Truman Capote's creation of the "nonfiction novel" In Cold Blood, is sending moviegoers in droves to buy that very book. USA Today reports that Vintage is in its third printing of the tie-in edition of In Cold Blood. "Right now, sales of Capote's books are running 28% ahead of last year," Lynne Widli of Barnes & Noble tells USA Today. "In Cold Blood was our top-selling literature title last week, outselling perennial favorites The Great Gatsby, 1984, Of Mice and Men, and Lord of the Flies." The film itself is based on Capote: A Biography, by Gerald Clarke, which has also seen an upsurge in sales in recent weeks. (
