The accomplishments of the 20th Century’s most-discussed literary superstars entered the canon of theatrical classics during the heyday of Broadway and sexual censorship in Hollywood. But the inside spin on the conflicts that pumped testosterone and venom into the collective conscious of the Entertainment industry has never been published. Until Now.

This is an uncensored overview of three of the literary canon’s most vocal and visible enfants terribles--Tennessee Williams, Gore Vidal, and Truman Capote, whose collective “bitchfests” involved and intimately embarrassed many key members of the both the glitterati and the literary elite.

Icons who reacted to the seductive temptations of this trio (and what actor wouldn’t want to appear in a play by authors universally viewed as immortal?) included a Who’s Who of the Entertainment industry: Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy, and dozens of other players from Hollywood and the social registers of the U.S. and Europe.

“This book is for anyone who’s interested in the formerly concealed scandals of Hollywood and Broadway, and the values and pretentions of both the literary world and the entertainment industry,” said it’s co-author, Danforth Prince. “This raucous and irreverent exposé of The Pink Triangle’s feuds, vanities, and idiosyncracies will be required reading for anyone interested in the literary climate of “The American Century.”
