New York Times bestselling author Melanie Benjamin, has won the critical acclaim and love of readers, reviewers and booksellers alike with her beautifully drawn fictional portraits of some of history’s most fascinating women. Benjamin’s newest novel, “The Swans of Fifth Avenue,” centers one of the most fashionable and scandalous duos in Manhattan history: socialite Babe Paley and the infamous Truman Capote. Headline-making, heartfelt and ultimately heart- wrenching: these are all ways to describe the intimate relationship between Babe and Truman, and beyond them, the tight-knit circle of society women—dubbed the ‘swans’ by Truman. “The Swans of Fifth Avenue” captures the essence of a sumptuous era and the unexpected pair at the heart of it all.
