14. agreed on the class angle; but i'd say capote's attitude toward the social register was ambivalent;


he spent most of his life after 'blood' as a courtier to the social register (& also a drug addict, just like burroughs). and imo, his success killed his writing. i think his non-productivity was part of the impetus for printing tittle-tattle about the social register.
