First and Last (Penguin 60s)

First and Last (Penguin 60s)Two short stories, although I gather the second is an excerpt, published as a Penguin 60.

The first, Mastery Misery is a story of dreams sold by the main characterset up in New York seeking her fortune, who finds better money in selling dreams than working for a livingsomewhat of a fantasy / horror storyhold onto your dreams kids...

The second, La Cote Basque is a fragmentary story of celebrities and gossip in a high end restaurantsome told, some overhead, and all accompanied by Cristal. Names of real people are included, which I guess is the scandalis it biographical or just slanderous? Published after the death of the author.

Well written, in two very different styles, and as noted in the blurb at different ends of Capote's career.
Somewhere between 3 and 4 star for me. Feeling generous, so 4 it is. 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! It’s taken me years to read any Capote and now I find this year I’ve already read three of his stories. I find him extremely readable and these short works are no exception.

The first is something of an American gothic while the second sums up sic transit gloria mundi better than almost anything, though I don’t think that was the intention.

Effortlessly cool. Truman Capote registers in my literary consciousness as one of the first writers of sensationally successful nonfiction (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 wholike thousands before and aftercame 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 reallife gossip? Does he create stories to entertain, though not to malign? Yes, it seems loose and rambling, unstructuredbut 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 waarnemingsvermoë wat hom ook as niefiksieskrywer gewild gemaak het.

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', wellwritten 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. 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 bettera great critique of New York jet set, shockingly Capote's friends featuring heavily. 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. เรื่องสั้นสองเรื่องของ Truman Capote เพิ่งเคยได้อ่านงานของเค้าเนี่ยละ

Master Misery งานเขียนช่วงแรกๆเกี่ยวกับหญิงสาวที่บังเอิญได้ไป ขายความฝัน กับ La Cote Basque ส่วนนึงของนิยายเรื่องสุดท้ายที่เขียนไม่จบของเค้า

3 stars for the the first story (Master Misery), a twilight zonish tale of the perils of dream peddlers of the 40s (I supposeI'm not sure of the decade). 5 stars for his salacious unfinished last novel, La Cote Basque!
