Summary
When Truman Capote gains access to New York high society, he builds an unlikely friendship with socialite Babe Paley
Summary
Benjamin transports readers to 1960s Manhattan. This story gives us the chance to spy on Truman Capote’s close friendship with Babe Paley and his society “swans,” and the betrayal and scandal that drove them apart. I loved the description of the Black and White Ball. -- Emily Weiss for LibraryReads
