Truman Capote was born Truman Persons in New Orleans in 1924, the son of Archulus "Arch" Persons and Lillie Mae Faulk. Arch was a fast-talking salesman and dreamer whose official employment was selling Mississippi river boat excursions to clubs and churches, but whose real desire was to strike it rich. His many crackpot schemes--legal and illegal--in pursuit of this fantasy inevitably ended in failure. Eventually his desperate projects carried him ever further outside the law. In 1931, and again in 1932, he was jailed for passing bad checks. Then, in 1934, he was convicted of forging a postal money order--a crime that carried with it a three-year term in the federal penitentiary. Luckily for Arch, however, his sentence was suspended.
Spirited, attractive, and ambitious, Lillie Mae quickly realized the colossal mistake she had made in marrying Arch. Looking elsewhere for consolation, she engaged in dozens of affairs, often with Arch's knowledge and tacit consent. In his turn, Arch sometimes tried to profit from his wife's infidelity, as in his staging of a boxing-match refereed by one of her lovers, the former heavyweight champion, Jack Dempsey.
