More About the Author

Truman Capote was born in New Orleans in 1925 and was raised in various parts of the south, his family spending winters in New Orleans and summers in Alabama and New Georgia. By the age of fourteen he had already started writing short stories, some of which were published. He left school when he was fifteen and subsequently worked for the New Yorker which provided his first - and last - regular job. Following his spell with the New Yorker, Capote spent two years on a Louisiana farm where he wrote Other Voices, Other Rooms (1948). He lived, at one time or another, in Greece, Italy, Africa and the West Indies, and travelled in Russia and the Orient. He is the author of many highly praised books, including A Tree of Night and Other Stories (1949), The Grass Harp (1951), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1958), In Cold Blood (1965), which immediately became the centre of a storm of controversy on its publication, Music for Chameleons (1980) and Answered Prayers (1986), all of which are published by Penguin. Truman Capote died in August 1984.

If you are a fan of Truman Capote you shouldn't be without this superb collection. "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is represented in it's entirety, along with numerous short stories and non-fiction pieces. "A House on the Heights" is a special treat. "A Christmas Memory" is one of the most beautiful prose pieces in all American literature. What makes this volume an absolute must is the inclusion of Capote's first non-fiction novel "The Muses Are Heard" - a delightfully funny account of a trip to the USSR with a traveling company of "Porgy and Bess." If you can find a copy of this BUY it, you will never regret it. This gem collection should be sold in Tiffany's instead of book stores.

I feel lucky to have found this book at a reasonable price. It included writings I had not been able to find elsewhere and is especially interesting because the author selected them himself for this edition.
