Book Summary

To all appearances, glamorous Babe Paley has it all:  money, beauty, jewels, a prestigious husband, gorgeous homes, and influential friends, including lim Keith, C.Z. Guest, Gloria Guinness, and Pamela Churchill.  But beneath Babe's elegantly composed exterior dwells a woman longing for true love and connection.  Enter Truman Capote.  This diminutive golden-haired genius with a larger-than-life personality explodes onto the scene, setting Babe and her circle of socialite swans aflutter.  Through Babe, Truman gains an unlikely entree into the enviable lives of Manhattan's elite, along with unparalleled access to the scandal and gossip of Babe's powerful circle.  Sure of the loyalty of the man she calls "True Heart," Babe never imagines the destruction Truman will leave in his wake.  But once a storyteller, always a storyteller--even when the stories aren't his to tell.
