The true story of the glamorous women who were unknowing subjects of Truman Capote’s last unpublished masterpiece, Answered Prayers. Leamer uncovers webs of unsung feminine influence woven across oceans and empires, taking peeks inside the most powerful (and scandalous) social circles of mid-century politics, thanks to Capote’s wicked case of writer’s block and an obsession with his fabulous flock of “swans” that I absolutely now share.

Even if you do not agree with me that Tucci's The Big Night is probably the best food movie ever, you will still find this gustatory memoir a delightful, escapist read. Deliciously evocative, laugh-out-loud funny, and even including recipes for some of his favorites, I read this straight through in two sittings - slowing myself down by rereading particularly delectable passages, but eagerly anticipating what still lay in wait for me. Read this, and then watch (or re-watch) that movie.
