Truman Capote: The Tiny Terror

2005 NR

At age 23, Truman Capote took the literary world by storm. Born in New Orleans and reared by backwoods relatives after his parents abandoned him, Capote constantly battled personal demons, even during his days as the toast of New York City's jet set. In this absorbing A&E biography, he's seen at work and at play while colleagues such as George Plimpton recollect Capote's wicked wit and ferocious candor.
