The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin
As a lover of Breakfast at Tiffany's, or rather Audrey Hepburn, I picked up this book to learn a bit more about Truman Capote. What I found was enticing and disturbing. A story told around the rise and ultimate social demise Capote, the novel highlights life in New York City in the age of golden money and grandeur.
"It was her style, that indefinable asset. It was said that the others had style but Babe was style."
