This engaging audiobook occupies a comfortable niche between gossip and sociology, after the fashion of Truman Capote's own famously unfinished novel, ANSWERED PRAYERS. That book forms the nexus for this group biography of the elegant society women whose secrets Capote so wantonly revealed there. Narrator Carrington MacDuffie effectively holds together the varied strains of a narrative rich in glamour but often fraught with heartache behind the scenes. The women featured--Babe Paley, Pamela Churchill, and Lee Radziwill, among others--led distinctive, privileged, highly publicized lives. And in a great many ways they are emblematic of the mid-century era, and of traditions that endure today. Expertly narrated, this richly detailed audiobook illustrates the maxim that yesterday's gossip is today's history. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
