Thought to be lost for over 50 years, here is the first novel by Truman Capote, one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.

Set in New York at the end of World War II, SUMMER CROSSING is the coming-of-age story of a young society girl who can't wait to grow up but doesn't know how. Grady's story begins as she sees her wealthy parents off on a ship bound for Europe. It will be her first summer alone in the city and she has big plans. She recently fell in love with a Jewish parking attendant from Brooklyn and her parents aren't gone an hour before she takes him home to their 5th Avenue apartment. As the summer passes, and their affair becomes more serious, Grady must make several decisions —choices that will forever affect her future once this long, memorable summer comes to an end.

Written in Capote's signature prose, SUMMER CROSSING is an important addition to the Capote shelf.
