    I have always been fascinated with Truman Capote. As a teenager, I remember him when he was in his decline and on the nightly talk shows. I read In Cold Blood when in my twenties and thus began my infatuation with true crime books. Most recently I read the Swans of Fifth Avenue and watched the two Capote themed feature films. My fascination is now in full bloom. This book has been hailed as the definitive Capote biography - and definitive (and long) it is! It goes into great detail and one needs I have always been fascinated with Truman Capote. As a teenager, I remember him when he was in his decline and on the nightly talk shows. I read In Cold Blood when in my twenties and thus began my infatuation with true crime books. Most recently I read the Swans of Fifth Avenue and watched the two Capote themed feature films. My fascination is now in full bloom. This book has been hailed as the definitive Capote biography - and definitive (and long) it is! It goes into great detail and one needs a scorecard to keep track of all the characters - there is a lot of name dropping, but Truman was also a name dropper so he'd have certainly approved. My biggest takeaway from this book is how remarkable and brave Capote was. His childhood was abysmal, he was a frequent target for bullies yet he could also be quite a bully, he'd set his sights on a goal and would achieve it at all costs, and he engaged in destructive relationships over and over again. Amidst all of this, he was a social observer with a sharp eye and able to produce beautiful prose. I wish this book had photographs. The author gives us descriptions of Truman and his people, but I'd have loved to see some of the what he describes without having to stop to look them up on the internet - specifically - the photo on the jacket of his first book, the portrait that hung above his couch in NYC, selections from the Black and White Ball. I read this book electronically - maybe the print copy was able to include photos?
