Описание: Truman Capote--along with his most famous works In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany's--continues to have a powerful hold over the American popular imagination. His glamorous lifestyle, which included hobnobbing with the rich and famous and frequenting the most elite nightclubs in Manhattan, makes him the subject of ongoing interest for public and academic audiences alike. In Understanding Truman Capote, Thomas Fahy provides a new direction for Capote studies that offers a way to reconsider the author's work. By reading Capote's work in its historical context, Fahy reveals the politics shaping his writing and refutes any notion of Capote as disconnected from the political. Instead this study positions him as a writer deeply engaged with the social anxieties of the 1940s and 1950s. Understanding Truman Capote also applies a highly interdisciplinary framework to the author's writing that includes discussions of McCarthyism, the Lavender Scare, automobile culture, juvenile delinquency, suburbia, Beat culture, the early civil rights movement, female sexuality as embodied by celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, and atomic age anxieties. This new approach to Capote studies will be of interest in the fields of literature, history, film, suburban studies, sociology, gender/sexuality studies, African American literary studies, and American and cultural studies.Capote's writing captures the isolation, marginalization, and persecution of those who deviated from or failed to achieve white middle-class ideals and highlights the artificiality of mainstream idealizations about American culture. His work reveals the deleterious consequences of nostalgia, the insidious impact of suppression, the dangers of Cold War propaganda, and the importance of equal rights. Ultimately Capote's writing reflects a critical engagement with American culture that challenges us to rethink our understanding of the 1940s and 1950s.

Описание: This book offers an enthralling look at the most celebrated party of the 1960s. 1966 was the year of Truman Capote. Flush with the success of "In Cold Blood", the acclaimed writer decided to throw a masked ball in honor of "Washington Post" publisher Katharine Graham at New York's Plaza Hotel. Everybody who was anybody wanted to be there; Capote boasted that he'd invited 500 friends but made 15,000 enemies those who wer't invited. The glittering roster of guests included everyone from newlyweds Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow to gorgeous young star Candice Bergen to sparring literary lions Norman Mailer and William F. Buckley ...from international crowned heads to assorted Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, and Whitneys. In this vivid and delightful narrative, Deborah Davis chronicles the frenzied preparation and anticipation leading up to the party and, in fascinating detail, captures the drama and excitement of the ball itself. Lavishly illustrated with photographs and facsimiles of the guest list, menus, masks, and other memorabilia, this portrait of revelry at the height of the swirling and swinging sixties will be the book of the season for anyone interested in American popular culture and the lifestyles and legacies of the rich, famous, and talented. Deborah Davis (Montclair, NJ) is a writer and film executive who has worked as a story editor and story analyst for several major film companies. She is the author of "Strapless: John Singer Sargent and the Fall of Madame X" (1-585-42336-X).

Описание: Truman Capote once remarked, “My primary thing is that I’m a prose writer. I don’t think film is the greatest living thing”; nonetheless, his legacy is in many ways defined by his complex relationship with cinema, Hollywood, and celebrity itself. In Truman Capote: A Literary Life at the Movies, Tison Pugh explores the author and his literature through a cinematic lens, skilfully weaving the most relevant elements of Capote’s biography— including his highly flamboyant public persona and his friendships and feuds with notable stars—with insightful critical analysis of the films, screenplays, and adaptations of his works that composed his fraught relationship with the Hollywood machine.Capote’s masterful short stories and novels ensure his status as an iconic author of the twentieth century, and his screenplays, including Beat the Devil, Indiscretion of an American Wife, and The Innocents, allowed him to collaborate with such Hollywood heavyweights as Humphrey Bogart, John Huston, and David O. Selznick. Throughout his professional life he circulated freely in a celebrity milieu populated by such notables as Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe. Cinematic adaptations of his literature, most notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and In Cold Blood, play with or otherwise alter Capote’s queer literary themes, often bleaching his daring treatment of homosexuality in favour of heterosexual romance.Truman Capote: A Literary Life at the Movies reveals Capote’s literary works to be not merely coincident to film but integral to their mutual creation, paying keen attention to the ways in which Capote’s identity as a gay southerner influenced his and others’ perceptions of his literature and its adaptations. Pugh’s research illuminates Capote’s personal and professional successes and disappointments in the film industry, helping to create a more nuanced portrait of the author and bringing fresh details to light.
