Description
Barbara 'Babe' Paley, Gloria Guinness, Marella Agnelli, Slim Hayward, Pamela Churchill, C. Z. Guest, Lee Radziwill-- they were the toast of midcentury New York, each beautiful and distinguished in her own way. These women captivated and enchanted Capote-- and infuriated him as well. He befriended them, received their deepest confidences, and then betrayed them in his unfinished novel, Answered Prayers, the thinly fictionalized lives (and scandals) of his closest female confidantes. Leamer shows that, in the late 1960s, Capote struggled with a crippling case of writer's block; Answered Prayers was supposed to be his magnum opus but instead banished Capote from high-society forever. -- adapted from back cover.
