I'm about 130 pages in and I think I have a pretty good idea what the next 260 pages will offer.
It's interesting as it's one of the few non-fiction novels, but certainly nowhere near the brilliance of "In Cold Blood".
Would the original "On the Road" be a non-fiction novel? Wouldn't it be one even with the names being changed? Hmmm...

I bought this as a kid thinking that it was a sci-fi book.
Protagonist is a kid with a "speech defect" who begins to disappear into a dissociative state due to being overwhelmed by his parents divorce and subsequent move to NYC; things not being helped by a cruel teacher and self-absorbed mother.
Most likely written for young people, this long-out-of-print book is, as the cover states, "an unusual and disturbing novel". It's a little dated but well-written, and as an adult reader I am enjoying this immensely, despite some very sad scenes.
The prose is simple and spare and does not draw attention to itself, and makes me want to throw "Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test" into a fire/hole/recycling bin.
