What I'm Reading Now: 12 September 17: brevity edition

I haven't read much this week, and things are going to be rather busy this week and the next.

All I can recall reading is assorted true crime, mostly by Ann Rule. I also read In cold blood by Truman Capote. It's considered the pioneering work of the true-crime genre: one of the first (and possibly the best) explorations of not just the crime itself, but the lives of everyone involved: the victims, the perpetrators, and investigators of a crime-- in this case, the murder of the Herb Clutter family. It's very well written, and if you're a true-crime reader, you should check it out.

I may have more to review next week, depending on how busy life gets.
