The No Name Book Club will discuss “The Swans of Fifth Avenue” by Marjorie Benjamin.
Of all the glamours stars of New York high society, none blazes brighter than Babe Paley. By all appearances, Babe has it all: money, beauty, glamour, jewels, influential friends, a high-profile husband, and gorgeous homes. Enter Truman Capote. This diminuitive golden-haired genius with a larger-than-life personality explodes onto the scene, setting Babe and her circle of Swans aflutter. But all too soon, he’ll ignite a literary scandal whose repercussions echo through the years. The Swans of Fifth Avenue opens the door onto one of America’s most sumptuous eras.
