Reviews

"An abundance of riches. . . . It is not hard at all to open to any page . . . and be amused, moved, intrigued." --Newsday "To best experience Capote the stylist, one must go back to his short fiction. . . . One experiences as strongly as ever his gift for concrete abstraction and his spectacular observancy." --The New Yorker "It is a stunning experience to reread this fiction . . . and to realize how very golden this boy was. . . . We are in the presence of a tremendous talent, and a fully mature technique as well. Norman Mailer's judgment that Capote was the most perfect writer of their generation--'he writes the best sentences word for word, rhythm upon rhythm'--seems true and just." --The New Criterion "Capote does some things perfectly than many writers can't do at all. . . . He summons the sensory world in its bewildering, inexhaustible richness." --Los Angeles Times Book Review
