Gerald Clarke ¸ 5 Read Capote A Biography review ð 5 G spirit and staggering talent but not before he'd hobnob with the likes of Grace Paley and Lee Radziwill feud outrageously with Gore Vidal and Jacueline Susann and stage at New York's Plaza Hotel the sensational Black and White Ba. In my opinion the author assesses various aspects of his life appropriately but leaves some areas grossly underrepresented or wrongly assessed For a concrete example of this Capote s adolescent experiences of being the victim of coerced sex by boys is playfully written off as relatively innocent forays spellcheck into sexuality Since when is coerced sex relatively innocent I guess he s thinking boys will be boys His experiences with a pedophile teacher I felt were also grossly underplayed DO NOT read this book if you are planning to read Other Voices Other Rooms author gives away story I also had an issue with authors interpretation of Other Voices I think he missed some crucial elements Enjoyed the book but found it unbalanced Read this with a critical eyeit has some glaring flaws but great nonetheless Intensive Care you are planning to read Other Voices Other Rooms author gives away story I also had an issue with authors interpretation of Other Voices I think he missed some crucial elements Enjoyed the book but found it unbalanced Read this with a critical eyeit has some glaring flaws but great nonetheless

Gerald Clarke ¸ 5 Read Capote A Biography review ð 5 Based on hundreds of hours of interviews with the man who authored In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany's as well as with nearly everyone who knew him this absorbing definitive biography follows Truman Capote from his eccentric c. Truman Capote died at age 59 in 1984 this 1988 biography by TIME writer Gerald Clarke despite a welter of Capote books concurrent with the two similar biopic movies a dozen years ago and continuing interest in the Tiny Terror this still is the best general interest bio IMO Clarke set himself the unenviable task of covering all of Capote s life but he performs marvelously Rarely have I read a general interest literary biography that discusses any author his demons his sexuality and his works with eual aplomb It s also illustrated here s where among other people you can see Truman Mambo ing with Marilyn Monroe in 1955 and from that same era the placid Herbert Clutter family of IN COLD BLOOD posing before the Christmas tree not knowing what awaited them So many versions of this estimable book have appeared over the years hardcover trade pbk two movie tie ins reissues that if one could line them up and arrange them they d provide a gallery of Capote likenesses running all the way from late youth to late life The trade paperback has understandably been a steady seller in various covers since its introduction the hardcover is not too difficult to locate used Sadly the most recent trade paperback with Capote back on the cover dispenses with slick paper for its photos leaving the black and white reproductions muddy and vague Even so I hope Clarke s masterwork will continue to spur interest in Capote s career and wide variety of screenplays like BEAT THE DEVIL stories like Breakfast at Tiffany s novels like OTHER VOICES OTHER ROOMS and nonfiction like the magisterial IN COLD BLOOD there are of them in print today than at any single time during Capote s life
