A Capote Reader
Truman Capote began writing when he was eight and became one of America's most versatile and gifted authors. A Capote Readercontains much of his published work- his dazzling fiction, including Breakfast at Tiffany's, as well as his prolific output of short stories, travel sketches in which he evokes places from Tangiers to Brooklyn, portraits of his contemporaries such as Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe and Cecil Beaton, and his brilliant reportage and essays. His piece entitled 'The Muses are Heard', which recounts a trip to Communist Europe with the cast of Porgy and Bess,shows the chameleon-like talents of a literary legend.
