'Music for Chameleons' spent 16 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, an unprecedented period for a short story collection. A number of the pieces were originally commissioned for Andy Warhol's Interview magazine and published in its 'Conversations with Capote' feature. The collection includes ‘Handcarved Coffins,’ a non-fiction novella, similar to the ground-breaking, 'In Cold Blood'.
