Based on hundreds of hours of interviews with the man who authored In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany''s, as well as with nearly everyone who knew him, this absorbing, definitive biography follows Truman Capote from his eccentric childhood in Alabama to the heights of New York society. Featuring many photographs, this book also candidly recounts a gifted and celebrated writer''s descent into the life of alcohol and drugs that would ultimately consume his bulldog spirit and staggering talent—but not before he''d hobnob with the likes of Grace Paley and Lee Radziwill, feud outrageously with Gore Vidal and Jacqueline Susann, and stage at New York''s Plaza Hotel the sensational Black and White Ball.
