Overview


The iconic author of In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany’s comes to life in Conversations with Capote, written by veteran interviewer Lawrence Grobel. Truman Capote knew from the age of eleven that he wanted to be a writer, and was published by his early twenties. He went on to pen some of the most beloved plays, novels, and short stories in twentieth century literature. Capote’s work, along with his flamboyant and charismatic personality, made him a beloved literary and cultural legend.

In this compelling book, Capote speaks candidly about his tumultuous childhood and early fame, his bouts with drugs and alcohol, his romantic relationships, and his work. He also shares his pointed thoughts on some of the most well known figures of our time, including Jacqueline Onassis, J.D. Salinger, Norman Mailer, Tennessee Williams, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe. This definitive, in-depth interview is a compelling read and a must-have for all fans of Capote’s work.

Editorial Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle
Who but Truman Capote would dare to say that about (among many, many others) Jacqueline Onassis, Norman Mailer, Montgomery Clift, Andr Gide, Marilyn Monroe, Lee Radziwill, Tennessee Williams, J. D. Salinger, Gore Vidal, and Elizabeth Taylor? Equally pointed is Capote's talk about himself-his childhood and early fame, his bouts with drugs and alcohol, his homosexuality, his assessment of his talent and his work, including In Cold Blood. He has definite opinions about good writing, and he isn't shy about saying who he thinks the biggest phonies are among his fellow writers. Conversations with Capote-which Capote intended to be the definitive in-depth interview-makes both the man and his times come alive and has what the San Diego Union called the "quality that will bring readers to it again and again."
Parade
Extraordinary conversations with the writer and celebrity who elevated talk to art and gossip to literature; "a candid, controversial, and engrossing read... from a tiny terror who wore brass knuckles on his tongue"
