To follow up, I chose "In Cold Blood," which was entirely new to me. Given this story basis in hard fact, I figured Capote would treat the material in a straightforward manner, as free of literary structure, voice and artifice as he could manufacture. I figured correctly Capote did his best. But even in matter of factly covering the Clutter murders, he still Capote those charming turns of phrase, those imaginative, evocatively precise similes still spice his prose and delicately render characters and events.

And while I am certainly no forensic linguist (I am often surprised to find, once per month when my bank statement arrives, that I myself handwrote a number of questionable checks) I like to think that I am a fairly alert reader my near spotless driving record attests to the fact that very few stop signs escape my notice. So I decided to read "To Kill a Mockingbird" and a work by Capote back to back, and thereby make up my own mind.

firmly believe, in my amateur forensic linguist view (and also in my heart, where it matters most anyway) that Harper Lee wrote "To Kill a Mockingbird" just like it says on the cover. Even if you want to insist that she didn I think you still have to admit it was written by someone other than Capote. The styles differ too much, according to my reading.

Just as, in this region, you must cheer for either Auburn or Alabama, you must also take an absolute side on this issue. Reclusive as she is, "Nell" doesn offer much support; at least with the likes of, say, Salinger and Kesey, who make occasional appearances (even if Converse Dainty Ox Sale only in the form of salacious biography), there hope that they still writing, that there still something they may yet tell us. Then again, the fastest way to the other side is: Hey, if you written "To Kill a Mockingbird," you might retire from writing, too. I know I would.

It fun to speculate how Capote may have helped Lee in places, telling her how a character should say this rather than that, or a scene might play better if written from a different perspective, that sort of thing. And, it equally fun to turn the tables on that game. If Capote and Lee were tight enough for him to edit and shape her drafts, well, how might she have affected his work?
