The book "Handmade Coffins" Truman Capote’s books; The creator of the world’s most popular crime thrillers

He has a simple, well-composed face, with bright blue eyes and a small, compact mouth that makes strange expressions, expressions that are sometimes funny and sometimes not. The head of his boyish appearance is not in his thinness and thinness, not in his bulging cheeks the color of ripe apples, not in his mischievous mysterious laugh, not in his hair that this man looks like someone else's little brother: garlic golden, cropped and so twisted on top A forehead that can't really be combed; He almost got his head wet.

Jake Pepper is a detective hired by the State Department of Criminal Investigation. We had first met through a mutual friend, another detective from another state. In 1972 he wrote a letter saying he was working on a murder case, which might be my favorite. I called him and we talked for three hours. I became very interested in the case that he had told me about, but when I suggested that I go there and measure and see the situation myself, he got worried; He said that it might not be time yet and his research would be jeopardized, but he promised to keep me informed." h2>Book "Music for Chameleons" Truman Capote’s books; The creator of the world’s most popular crime thrillers

But surprisingly, it turns out that the Martinique version of the celebration is just like the explosion of a bomb in a fireworks factory, full of excitement and energy, instinctive and lively.

We are enjoying it. my friends and me Last night there was a militant group that was demonstrating: 50 men had black umbrellas in their hands and cylinder hats on their heads, and skeletons were drawn on their upper bodies with dark colored materials. I fell in love with the old ladies who were wearing sparkly gold hats and had sequins all over their faces. All those men who were wearing their wives' white wedding dresses. Those millions of children who had candles in their hands and were shining like fireflies. Honestly, we ended up with a disaster. We took a car from the hotel and arrived at Fort de France and we were making our way through the crowd when one of our tires got punctured and some red-clad devils grabbed our hands...

"I always have a strange attraction to the houses and neighborhoods in which I have lived before. For example, there is a stone building on East Seventy-Chandem Street where I got my first apartment in New York in the early years of World War II. It was a room full of the usual furniture and furnishings of attic rooms, a sofa and wide chairs covered with rough velvet in a bright red color, reminding one of the hot days in the tram. The walls were plastered with a color similar to tobacco residue. All the walls of the house, even the wall of the bathroom, were full of photos of ancient Roman ruins, which the passage of time had left brown spots on. The only window in the house opened to the emergency staircase.

However, every time I touched the key to this apartment in my pocket, it gave me a good feeling. Despite its darkness and boredom, it was a place of mine, the first place of mine. My books were also there and jars full of pencils waiting to be scraped. In short, everything was available there, everything I needed at that time to become the writer I wanted to be.

In those days, nothing had occurred to me to write about Holly Golightly. Maybe if that conversation with Joe Bell hadn't happened and all my memories hadn't been brought back to life, I wouldn't be trading him now.

Holly Golightly was a tenant in one of the units in the old stone building, right below mine. Joe Bell owned and still owns a bar on the corner of Lexington Street. Holly and I used to go there six or seven times a day. Of course, we didn't always go to drink, but sometimes we wanted to make a phone call; Few people had private telephones during the war. Also, Joe Bell was a good messenger, and that was a huge boon to Holly, because she had messages every day. I hadn't seen Joe Bell."

"These days, a traveler should end he can afford to get to Nun City, as no bus or train goes that way, although a truck from the Chaubri Turpentine Company collects mail and goods six days a week in the next town, Paradise Chapel: occasionally someone bound for Nun City can accompany the truck driver Sam Radcliffe. Either way, it's a difficult journey, because these closed roads will knock down even new cars in the blink of an eye, and free riders always think it's bad to go ahead. This is a deserted land; In these swamp-like pits where the lily flowers are the size of a man's head, there are bright green logs that shine like drowned corpses under the dark swamp; Often the only movement in the landscape is the wintry smoke rising from the chimney of a pitiful cottage, or a stiff-winged bird circling silently and keen-eyed over a dark and lonely pine grove.

Two roads lead through the wastelands to Nun City; one from the north, the other from the south; The second, known as the Paradise Chapel Highway, is a better route, although the two are no different; Kilometers of abandoned roads full of swamps and plains and forests stretch along both roads, which are interrupted only by scattered billboards advertising five-cent cigarettes, Red Dot, Dr. Pepper, Nihay, and Tonic Grove Chill. Wooden bridges over wretched streams named after extinct Indian tribes rumble under passing wheels like thunder in the distance; Herds of pigs and cows roam freely on the roads; Now and then a farming family stops work, waves at a car that flashes by, and watches sadly until the car disappears into the red dust.

A warm day in early June, Sam Radcliffe , the driver of the turpentine company, a bald man with a height of one hundred and eighty centimeters and a rough and masculine face was drinking beer at the Morning Star Cafe in Paradise Chapel when the owner of the cafe came forward with his arm wrapped around a strange boy.
