This book...this book...it's not a fast paced electric reading experience but it is totally absorbing! This author does this kind of writing so well. Her research is amazing. So...one of the central characters is Babe Paley...close friend and bestie to Truman Capote. He would lunch with Babe and his other "Swans" and get them to divulge stuff...about themselves and others. He would promise not to tell! Do you think he kept his word?
