about this book

Using the oral biography style that made his Edie (with Jean Stein) a bestseller, literary lion George Plimpton blends the voices of Truman Capote's friends, lovers, and colleagues into a captivating and highly readable biographical narrative. Katherine Graham, Lauren Bacall, Gore Vidal, Norman Mailer, Lee Radziwill, John Huston, John Knowles, William F. Buckley, Jr., and dozens of others offer insights into Truman Capote's life and work-and the glamorous worlds of the arts, society, and politics of which he was a focal point.
