Item description for Musica para camaleones by Truman Capote...
La obra bucea con implacable lucidez en la poesia y el horror de la vida; es el esplendido resultado de una necesidad de comunicacion directa entre lector y materia narrativa. En palabras suyas: hacer del lector un observador o mejor aun, un testigo de una experiencia verdadera que, contada bajo tal optica, resultara mucho mas subyugante que si el autor la interepretase al modo clasico.
