Harper Lee and Truman Capote are two of this country’s most celebrated writers. Lee for her Pulitzer Prize-winning “To Kill A Mockingbird,” and Capote for “In Cold Blood,” among others. Both writers got their start behind a battered old typewriter brought home by Lee’s father when they were children. They grew up as next-door neighbors in the town of Monroeville, Alabama. They would play a part in each other’s most celebrated novels, yet the competition drove them apart as adults. Find out about the unique friendship they shared for most of their lives.
