    schema:description "One hot summer night in 1945, three young American writers, each an enfant terrible, came together in a stuffy Manhattan apartment for the first time. Each member of this pink triangle was on the dawn of world fame--Tennessee Williams for A Streetcar Named Desire; Gore Vidal for his notorious homosexual novel, The City and the Pillar; and Truman Capote for Other Voices, Other Rooms, a book that had been marketed with a photograph depicting Capote as a underaged sex object that caused as much controversy as the prose inside. Each of the three remained competitively and defiantly provocative throughout the course of his writing career. Initially hailed by critics as "the darlings of the gods," each of them would, in time, be attacked for his contributions to film, the theater, and publishing. Some of their works would be widely reviewed as "obscene rantings from perverted sociopaths." From that summer night emerged betrayals that eventually evolved into lawsuits, stolen lovers, public insults, and the most famous and flamboyant rivalries in America's literary history. The private opinions of these authors about their celebrity acquaintances usually left scar tissue."@en ;
