: call it historical since it was begun during
: events the author was present at.
: By the way, Sterling, you said you'd never
: read In Cold Blood. I avoided it for years,
: suspicious of the whole non-fiction novel
: business, but I really enjoyed it.
: The introduction discussed issues of
: translation, particularly about the title.
: Even before reading that, the title bugged
