Capote began writing as a young child and had won an award for his short story, Old Mrs. Busybody when he was only twelve. While living in Monroeville, Alabama with relatives, he formed a lifelong friendship with Harper Lee, who would later help him on his novel In Cold Blood. Truman's mother had remarried, to Joseph Capote, and Truman adopted the surname in 1933, after moving to New York. His formal education was first at Trinity School and then St. Joseph Military Academy. After moving to Greenwich, Connecticut in 1939, Capote attended Greenwich High School and began to write for the school newspaper. In 1942, the family moved to New York City and Truman attended the Franklin School, graduating the following year. During that year, he also worked for The New Yorker as a copyboy. In 1945, after a conflict with Robert Frost, Capote was fired and returned to Alabama. He was a prolific writer and contributed numerous stories and articles to all of the major magazines of the day, including Harper's Bazaar, The Atlantic Monthly, etc. His first novel, Other Voices, Other Rooms, appeared in 1948 and helped Capote's rise to fame. Success followed success and Capote began working on screenplays with equal triumph. In 1958, he produced Breakfast at Tiffany's, an iconic work that received rave reviews. Some years later, in 1965, he wrote In Cold Blood, the story of the brutal murder of a farming family in Kansas.He labelled it a non-fiction novel, and the critics labelled it a masterpiece.In 1975, Capote published La Cote Basque 1965, which revealed the secrets of many of his friends and led to his cultural downfall. Nevertheless, Capote continued to produce successes such as the best-seller Music for Chameleons in 1980. A drug and alcohol abuser for years, Capote died of liver cancer and drug intoxication. His other works include A Tree of Night and Other Stories (1949), House of Flowers (1950), The Grass Harp (1951), Beat the Devil (1953), The Muses Are Heard (1956), The Thanksgiving Visitor (1968), The Dogs Bark (1973), One Christmas (1983) and Answered Prayers (1986 Posthumous).
