Norman Mailer called Truman Capote ?the most perfect writer of [his] generation?, one who ?writes the best sentences word for word, rhythm upon rhythm? and said that he ?would not have changed two words' in Breakfast at Tiffany?s ? high praise, but not unjustified. While these stories certainly seem a little dated now, they do so more in terms of content and specific references, and a general feeling of being written in a gentler and possibly slightly more na´ve time. However, the prose, clear and unrestricted as a refreshing mountain stream, provides not a little pleasure, and Capote?s pitch-perfect ear for dialogue and his mastery at establishing characters with a few seemingly simple strokes remain unparalleled. The stories in this volume all straddle a rather thin line between reality and fable but are, in the ultimate analysis, immune to simple categorizations.
