Reviews

  • "A rich, sharp, sting of a book. It made me laugh and grimace and pity monsters. I'm still smiling about it"

    Stu Turton, bestselling author of THE SEVEN DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE
  • "Brilliantly captures Capote’s acid wit and his dramatic downfall."

    The Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • "As deliciously gossipy as it is wretched, and Greenberg-Jephcott's unique rendering of Capote's squealing drawl of a voice is unforgettable."

    Frankie McCoy, Evening Standard BOOKS OF THE YEAR
  • "Gorgeous... That glittering world - all Dom Perignon, Sobranies, Quaalude and Chanel - is recreated with a lovely eye for detail"

    Robbie Millen, The Times
  • "Since reading the totally, totally beautiful Swan Song, I have two new hobbies. Googling photos of Barbara Paley and watching videos of the Camel Walk."

    Dolly Alderton
  • "A sparkling debut vividly captures the high society women who punished Capote for his indiscreet reporting"

    The Guardian
  • "A dazzlingly assured first novel... This clever book, with the moreish astringency of a negroni, is a perfect summer cocktail"

    The Sunday Times
  • "A completely fascinating novel and a marvellously skillful re-imagining of real people, times and places. Outstanding."

    William Boyd
  • "This is a first novel of extraordinary skill, a book of which Capote would have been proud"

    Alex Preston, The Observer
  • "If a writer is going to craft a novel from well-known events, they might as well do it with brio, which this has in spades... A skilled and sparking debut"

    Suzi Feay, Guardian
