The new major motion picture dealing with Capote is based on this biography of the gay author of »In Cold Blood« and »Breakfast at Tiffany's«. Based on hundreds of hours of interviews with Capote as well as with nearly everyone who knew him, this biography follows Truman Capote from his eccentric childhood in Alabama to the heights of New York society. It also recounts this gifted writer's descent into a life of alcohol and drugs that would ultimately consume his enormous talent. But not before he'd hobnobbed with the likes of Babe Paley and Lee Radziwill, feuded with Gore Vidal and Jacqueline Susann, staged his never-to-be-equaled Black and White Ball, and left an impact that is still resonating. Truman Capote's fiction and autobiographical works helped establish what might be called the quintessential homosexual writing style of the 1950s and 1960s. This biography shows how homophobia and being homosexual shaped Capote and his work.
