Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
Melanie Benjamin writes of The Swans of Fifth Avenue, women who were the symbols of style and wealth in 1960s New York and their “True Heart,” author Truman Capote. This historical fiction is a character study of two lonely individuals and a period piece of the lifestyle of the very rich. Beautifully characterized with an exaggerated extravagance that matches the individuals, the book is a delightful introduction to a history I enjoyed researching after reading the fiction.
