About this title

Synopsis:

In these gems of reportage Truman Capote takes true stories and real people and renders them with the stylistic brio we expect from great fiction. Here we encounter an exquisitely preserved Creole aristocrat sipping absinthe in her Martinique salon; an enigmatic killer who sends his victims announcements of their forthcoming demise; and a proper Connecticut householder with a ruinous obsession for a twelve-year-old he has never met. And we meet Capote himself, who, whether he is smoking with his cleaning lady or trading sexual gossip with Marilyn Monroe, remains one of the most elegant, malicious, yet compassionate writers to train his eye on the social fauna of his time.

From the Back Cover:

'Everything is displayed in this book: insights and recollections of the famous and the obscure; old jokes and fresh wit... These stories and vignettes will endure.' - New Republic.In these gems of reportage Truman Capote takes true stories and real people and renders them with the stylistic brio we expect from great fiction.
