Seit eine Auseinandersetzung mit ihrer Stiefmutter Karen eskalierte, gilt die sechzehnjährige Verity als emotional instabil. Karen ignoriert sie seit dem Vorfall und legt all ihre Aufmerksamkeit auf ihre jüngere Tochter Brontë. Deren Tage sind vollgepackt mit Klavierunterricht und Nachhilfe – was immer es braucht, um sie zu neuen Höchstleistungen zu treiben. Denn Karen lässt nichts außer Perfektion gelten. Eines Tages entschließt Verity impulsiv, ihrer kleinen Schwester eine Auszeit zu gönnen, und geht mit ihr auf den Spielplatz.

Apollo, der Froschkönig aus dem Märchen, Wotan, Buddha und zahlreiche andere »Helden« aus Volkssagen und Religionen – sie alle lassen sich auf den einen Heros zurückführen, den Ursprung aller Mythen. Und gleichzeitig stellen sie verschiedene Versionen und Ausformungen des Heldentypus dar. Durch umfassende Vergleiche und Deutungen bringt Campbell die Eigenheiten, die Gemeinsamkeiten und die Unterschiede dieser zeitlosen Symbole ans Licht. »Der Heros in tausend Gestalten« ist ein unumgängliches Standardwerk der Mythenforschung – ein Handbuch über die Helden der Menschheitsgeschichte und deren Bedeutung, das auch dem interessierten Laien die Geschichte des Heros verständlich nahebringt.

Im November 1959 wird in Holcomb, Kansas, die vierköpfige Familie Clutter brutal ermordet. Wenige Wochen später werden die Täter Dick Hickock und Perry Smith auf der Flucht geschnappt. Truman Capote erfährt aus der New York Times von dem Verbrechen und beschließt, am Tatort zu recherchieren. Er spricht mit Bekannten und Freunden der Familie, mit der Polizei. Schließlich erhält er Gelegenheit, mit den beiden Mördern zu reden. Mit der Zeit gelingt es ihm, so viel Nähe zu ihnen herzustellen, dass sie ihm präzise Innenansichten ihrer Seele erlauben. Fast sechs Jahre nach ihrer Tat begleitet er sie bis an den Galgen. Capotes herausragende Rekonstruktion eines Mordes wurde eine Sensation und begründete ein neues literarisches Genre: die "non-fiction novel", den Tatsachenroman. In einer atemberaubenden Sprache erzählt er, wie aus Menschen Mörder werden. Mit Kaltblütig landete Capote einen internationalen Bestseller.
