In 1966, everyone who was anyone wanted an invitation to Truman Capote's "Black and White Dance" in New York, and guests included Frank Sinatra, Norman Mailer, C. Z. Guest, Kennedys, Rockefellers, and more. Lavishly illustrated with photographs and drawings of the guests, this portrait of revelry at the height of the swirling, swinging sixties is a must for anyone interested in American popular culture and the lifestyles of the rich, famous, and talented.

Review: Party of the Century: The Fabulous Story of Truman Capote and His Black-And-White Ball

User Review  - Goodreads

Very interesting book about an iconic American author, as well as a time period. Quite well-written, I only wished there were more photographs. Reminded me of how well I liked "Capote in Kansas" by Kim Powers, also. Read full review
