Reviews

"Mesmerizing. . . . The book reads as if it had been written alongside the life, rather than after it."
--Molly Haskell, The New York Times Book Review
"A book of extraordinary substance, a study rich in intelligence and compassion....To read Capote is to have the sense that someone has put together all the important pieces of this consummate artist's life, has given everything its due emphasis, and comprehended its ultimate meaning."

--Bruce Bawer, The Wall Street Journal
"Engrossing, vivid, beautifully written, a large-scale portrait of the rich and famous. . . This is literary biography the way it should be written, as rich and densely textured as a novel."

--James Atlas, Vogue
