The Fabulous Story Of Truman Capote And His Black And White Ball.
In this vivid and delightful narrative, Deborah Davis chronicles the frenzied preparation and anticipation leading up to the most celebrated party of the 1960s–the masked ball Truman Capote, bestselling author of 'In Cold Blood', gave in honor of Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham. Lavishly illustrated with photographs and facsimiles of the guest list, menus, masks, and other memorabilia, this book captures in fascinating detail all the drama and excitement of this storied event while bringing to life the social, cultural, and literary worlds at the height of the swinging and turbulent sixties.
