Complete Stories of Truman Capote

€ 17.95

A landmark collection that brings together Truman Capote's life's work in the form he called his great love, The Complete Stories confirms Capote's status as a master of the the short story. This first-ever compendium features a never-before-published 1950 story, The Bargain, as well as an introduction by Reynolds Price. Ranging from the gothic South to the chic East Coast, from rural children to aging urban sophisticates, all the unforgettable places and people of Capote's oeuvre are here, in stories as elegant as they are heartfelt, as haunting as they are compassionate. Reading them reminds us of the miraculous gifts of a beloved American original.
