Using oral biography, a technique that perfectly matches the style of his subject, George Plimpton blends the voices of Capote's lovers, haters, acquaintances, and colleagues into a highly readable narrative. Here we are present for the entire span of Capote's life: his Southern childhood and his early days in New York; his first literary success with the publication of Other Voices, Other Rooms; his highly active love life; the groundbreaking excitement of In Cold Blood, the first "nonfiction novel"; his years as a jet-setter; and his final days of flagging inspiration, alcoholism, and isolation. All his famous friends and enemies are here: Katherine Graham, Lauren Bacall, Gore Vidal, Joan Didion, William Styron, Kurt Vonnegut, Norman Mailer, Lee Radziwill, John Huston, John Knowles, William F. Buckley, Jr., and dozens of others

Edie : an American biography by Jean Stein( Book )
24 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,401 libraries worldwide
When Edie was first published, it quickly became an international bestseller and then took its place among the classic books about the 1960s. Edie Sedgwick exploded into the public eye like a comet. She seemed to have it all: she was aristocratic and glamorous, vivacious and young, Andy Warhol's superstar. But within a few years she flared out as quickly as she had appeared, and before she turned twenty-nine she was dead from a drug overdose. In a dazzling tapestry of voices--family, friends, lovers, rivals--the entire meteoric trajectory of Edie Sedgwick's life is brilliantly captured. And so is the Pop Art world of the 60s: the sex, drugs, fashion, music, the mad rush for pleasure and fame. All glitter and flash on the outside, it was hollow and desperate within, like Edie herself, and like her mentor, Andy Warhol. Alternately mesmerizing, tragic, and horrifying, this book shattered many myths about the 60s experience in America."

Women writers at work : the Paris review interviews by George Plimpton( Book )
32 editions published between 1989 and 1999 in English and held by 995 libraries worldwide
The Paris Review holds an exalted place in the annals of literature, and its interviews with writers are legendary. This reputation for excellence is borne out in the pages of this volume, the most recent in a series of interview collections and the second to focus on women writers. In her wonderfully saucy introduction, Margaret Atwood explains why a volume devoted solely to women writers is appropriate and desirable, an argument that paves the way for the edgy candor of the conversations themselves. Here are invaluable exchanges with such grande dames as Rebecca West and Katherine Ann Porter as well as interviews with contemporary writers, including Toni Morrison, Nadine Gordimer, and Joyce Carol Oates. A photograph, reproduction of a manuscript page (what a nice touch), and biographical sketch proceed each in-depth interview. The probing and intricate discussions conducted by the likes of Donald Hall, Edward Hirsch, and Elizabeth Spires touch on everything from inspiration to working methods, gossip, and transcendent experiences, and these women speak as magnificently as they write
