The good folks of western Kansas have learned to live with their association with the 1959 Clutter family murders, but the buzz is growing again, thanks to Hollywood. USA Today reported last week that Vintage has gone back to press three times with its edition of “In Cold Blood” tied to “Capote,” the new film starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as author Truman Capote. And a Barnes & Noble official said “In Cold Blood” has been its leading literature title of late, outselling “The Great Gatsby,” “1984,” “Of Mice and Men” and “Lord of the Flies.” Wish the movie would hurry up and get to Wichita.
