Summary
This brief biography on Truman Capote focuses on the author's turbulent childhood, and how these experiences influenced his literary gifts of lucid imagery and profound empathy for his characters. Long, a noted writer and book critic, uses explicit themes in Capote's prose to underline the writer's propensity for self-destructive behaviors. At the same time this book, written for enthusiasts of literary criticism and general audiences, never veers from the essential talents of the writer.
