Nominated for the Women s Prize for Fiction 2019This novel is based on a fascinating real life story but I was bored out of my mind reading it After spending years with the rich and the famous writer Truman Capote published a text called La C te Basue 1965 in an issue of Esuire magazine in 1975 which was intended to be part of his new novel Answered Prayers the unfinished book was then published posthumously in 1986 In it Capote spills the secrets of some of his high society friends their thinly veiled identities easy to decipher for contemporary readers As a conseuence Capote lost many of his closest female friends socialites who felt like he sold them out for personal gain while he argued that well he s a writer so he writes This could make for a drama of epic proportions and Greenberg Jephcott does a decent job trying to demonstrate how a neglected boy from Alabama grows up to become a famous writer who seeks validation in the highest circles and then goes too far by exposing women who are themselves caught in a web of strict societal norms But just like the lifestyle shown in the book everything is over the top and completely empty at the same time The book is too chatty and too long while there is also not enough content insert torturous vignettes about so and so who wore the wrong clothes on so and so s yacht and people drinking cocktails while talking about nothing yawn the language is too manufactured but does not convey much and the people are often simply caricatures The narrative idea was apparently to write a revenge tale where the socialites the swans tell their side of the story and the author introduces a we narration with shifting points of view which doesn t always work but is uite interesting But make no mistake this is not about empowerment or feminism The swans sound like absolutely terrible shallow people who used to hang out with Capote because he was kind of exotic and amusing They are not glamorous they are completely void Capote is turned into a caricature regularly referred to as the boy when he is already a grown up man you could argue it s to maintain some connection to the narrative thread about his childhood but it s derogatory he is the elfin with the girlish voice he is a twisted little cherub he says sentences like Weeeelllll you seeeeeee Gore was drunk as a skunk uelle surprise I m sorry but women who talk about a homosexual man like that are not beautiful wealthy vulnerable women the blurb they are mainly idiots Granted Capote himself was known for his vicious comments and he betrayed their trust but the whole set up of the story suffers from the fact that everyone is just terrible and I don t feel like this was an intentional narrative decision I can t generally judge how well researched the book is and maybe all of those interconnected stories about all the socialites Capote disappointed and their pretty uninteresting trials and tribulations are true but there is one lengthy part that talks about the five stages of grief as described by Swiss born psychiatrist Elisabeth K bler Ross and it s easy to find the correct German terminology via Google Wikipedia you name it If an author decides to insert the German terms of a scientific model and the K bler Ross model was developed in the US and in English so the German version serves no purpose whatsoever in the context of this book it s embarassing if some of the terms she employs are not only wrong but completely absurd No the German word for depression is certainly not Gedr ckt sigh I think I m getting eine Depression So all in all I was promised the glamour and the excitement of the haute vol e but instead it was ennui and tristesse royale I think the author had some interesting ideas to heighten the complexity of this tale but unfortunately the book fails to deliver This is chick lit and I believe that it is much amusing for people who are interested in the escapdes of the haute vol e than it was for me
