Random House presents the audiobook edition of Swan Song by Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott, read by Deborah Weston. NOMINATED FOR THE 2019 WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION'A dazzlingly assured first novel... This clever book, with the moreish astringency of a negroni, is a perfect summer cocktail.' SUNDAY TIMES'A whirlwind of a first novel. There is great pathos in the Swans' woundings and in their inevitable decline. And the character of Truman himself shimmers through the novel in a wonderful blaze of eccentricity and excess. Outstanding.' ROSE TREMAIN___________________________To the outside world, they were the icons of high society - the most glamorous and influential women of their age. To Truman Capote they were his Swans: the ideal heroines, as vulnerable as they were powerful. They trusted him with their most guarded, martini-soaked secrets, each believing she was more special and loved than the next.Until he betrayed them.'Writers write. And one can't be surprised if they write what they know.'______________________________'A completely fascinating novel and a marvellously skilful re-imagining of real people, times and places. Outstanding.' WILLIAM BOYD'Scandalous, frenetic, amusing and tragic.' DAILY MAIL'Our generation's The Secret History' PENDORA'Brilliantly written, deeply researched, funny, sharp and moving.' - KATE WILLIAMS, bestselling author of Josephine 'Brilliantly captures Capote's acid wit and his dramatic downfall.' THE TIMES, Books of the Year'This is a first novel of extraordinary skill, a book of which Capote would have been proud' OBSERVER'Greenberg-Jephcott's debut is a devastating read that blurs the lines between vulnerability and narcissism; sex and power... will have you racing breathlessly towards the end' THE POOL
