Obviously written in Capote's younger days, this is a book of lost love and youth. Excellent summer read.
This a must-read for Truman Capote fans!
You can definitely tell that this novel was written by Truman Capote. He puts all of his heart and soul into his novels. The only thing I did not like about this novel was that I felt incomplete at the end, I wanted more. I understand that this was supposed to be an unpublished manuscript, but I guess I was just hoping for me. You should at least read this and give it a try.
Thought to be lost for over 50 years, here is the first novel by one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
Set in New York during the summer of 1945, this is the story of a young carefree socialite, Grady, who must make serious decisions about the romance she is dangerously pursuing and the effect it will have on everyone involved.
Fans of Breakfast at Tiffanys and Capotes short stories will be thrilled to read Summer Crossing.
It was unbalanced. But I do like the ending, a little morbid but I believe it fit the book. It was really interesting to learn the history behind the book and the author. All and all it was not a waste of time! Short easy read, great for summer.
