But Capote continued to work on the manuscript on and off, for another six years, first abandoning it for <i>Other Voices, Other Rooms</i> (1948), the story collection <i>A Tree of Night</i> (1949), and the essay collection <i>Local Color</i> (1951).</p> Mon, 10 Apr 2006 14:18:00 +0000 Don Noble 1423 at http://apr.org Summer Crossing
