First and Last (Penguin 60s)

First and Last (Penguin 60s) The first story, Master Misery is the old selling soul to devil tale, although this time it s dreams for cash Well written, but I ve read so many versions of this before it felt done.Second story, La Cote Basque was much better a great critique of New York jet set, shockingly Capote s friends featuring heavily. Best Book, First And Last Penguin 60s By Truman Capote This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book First And Last Penguin 60s , Essay By Truman Capote Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You So I ve started collecting these mini penguins the 60s, 70s and pocket modern classics They are perfect for reading on the back of my motorbike ride to work, giving me up to an extra 9 hours reading time a week weather permitting Only 2 short stories in this little book I really liked the first, Mastery Misery , well written and eerily disconcerting A tale of loneliness, fear and lost or rather sold dreams.The second piece, La Cote Basque however, was just a collection of rambling shared and overheard gossip by lady socialites at a trendy restaurant one evening A few interesting pieces but overall pretty dull I feel when Capote goes in this direction he fails to find cohesion and there is no real story, just some statements about the mindsets and private lives of the social elite. Truman Capote Master Misery La Cote Basque I preferred the first story to the last The first one is the story of a girl who sells her dreams The last story is interesting in parts, but loses your focus in others Quick read, I finished it in a little over an hour. 3 stars for the the first story Master Misery , a twilight zonish tale of the perils of dream peddlers of the 40s I suppose I m not sure of the decade 5 stars for his salacious unfinished last novel, La Cote Basque Always love his writing Always. Truman Capote registers in my literary consciousness as one of the first writers of sensationally successful non fiction IN COLD BLOOD , strengthened by the biopic with Philip Seymour Hoffman These two shorter fictional prose pieces are therefore interesting In the first from early in his career he tells of a young woman who like thousands before and after came to The Big Apple in search of her fortune Her attempt is not particularly successful and she starts selling her dreams to an unusual buyer, who is never introduced directly to the reader A brief fantasy, essentially, warning one not to let go of one s dreams The second piece is from an unfinished novel, called scandalous in the blurb The narrator and Lady Ina lunch in a famous restaurant, encircled by celebrities They share gossip and overhear stories told by other patrons The scandalous aspect is that Capote writes about real people, like Jacky Kennedy and Orson Welles, to mention but two Does he tell the truth Does he tap into his own well of real life gossip Does he create stories to entertain, though not to malign Yes, it seems loose and rambling, unstructured but essentially it is also a collections of stories about lost dreams The pair therefore fit each other perfectly.In hierdie twee verhale oor verlore drome, een uit die begin van sy loopbaan, die tweede uit n onvoltooide roman, gevul met skandalige skinnerstories, demonstreer Capote sy waarnemingsvermo wat hom ook as niefiksieskrywer gewild gemaak het. The first piece here, Master Misery , is a dark little fantasy story about a man who buys dreams It wouldn t be out of place today in McSweeney s or PostScripts, but it didn t really have any surprises or anything particularly profound to say.The second piece, La Cote Basque is an extract from an unfinished novel, published years after Capote s death It s a series of scandalous tales about real people Joe Kennedy, Princess Margaret, Jackie Kennedy and so on from the 1960s told by ladies sitting in a restaurant It s interesting gossip, but a dull story.In the week that Prince Harry has been reported as saying to a black comedian, You don t sound like a black chap , it was interesting to read Capote s words on the British royal family basically, royals think that there are just three categories colored folk, white folk, and royals Everything changes in the end, but some things change very slowly
