Description:
From the Modern Library's new set of beautifully repackaged hardcover classics by Truman Capote--also available are 'Breakfast at Tiffany's 'and' Other Voices, Other Rooms '(in one volume), ' In Cold Blood, 'and 'The Complete Stories' Perhaps no twentieth-century writer was so observant and graceful a chronicler of his times as Truman Capote. 'Portraits and Observations' is the first volume devoted solely to all the essays ever published by this most beloved of writers. Included are such masterpieces of narrative nonfiction as 'The Muses Are Heard' and the short nonfiction novel 'Handcarved Coffins,' as well as many long-out-of-print essays, including portraits of Mae West, Humphrey Bogart, and Marilyn Monroe. From his travel sketches of Brooklyn, New Orleans, and Hollywood, written when he was twenty-two, to the author's last written words, 'Remembering Willa Cather,' composed the day before his death in 1984, 'Portraits and Observations' puts on display the full spectrum of Truman Capote's brilliance. Certainly Capote was, as Somerset Maugham famously called him, 'a stylist of the first quality.' But as the pieces gathered here remind us, he was also an artist of remarkable substance.
