Melanie Benjamin is the New York Times bestselling author of The Aviator’s Wife, The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb, and Alice I Have Been.

In the dazzling high society of 1950s Manhattan, gossip and rumors swirled around a heart-wrenching and scandalous relationship between Babe Paley, a Manhattan socialite, and Truman Capote, a literary genius. Melanie Benjamin’s newest book The Swans of Fifth Avenue (to be released January 26) seduces readers with this legendary romance, opening the doors to the private parlors of the rich and famous and the secrets whispered therein.

Babe Paley was dubbed “the Goddess of Beauty” and seemed to have it all. But beneath this elegantly composed exterior was a woman longing for true love and connection. Truman Capote, a diminutive golden-haired genius with a larger-than-life personality exploded onto the social scene, setting Babe and her circle of “Swans” aflutter. Frank Sinatra, Andy Warhol, Lauren Bacall, and Rose Kennedy make cameo appearances in the book.
