Date

Time
6.30pm - 7.30pm
Description
Based on ten years of research comes a dazzling literary debut about the rise and self-destructive fall of Truman Capote and the beautiful, wealthy, vulnerable women he called his swans.

Compulsively readable, Swan Song is a tale of betrayal, society, romance and rupture that moves between the cocktail-soaked Manhattan parties and Capote’s childhood in Depression-era Alabama, capturing a great writer’s meteoric rise and self-destructive fall. This is a whirlwind of a novel that has been described as seductive, spellbinding and marvellously skilful.
