Staff Reviews


It's 1953 on the coast of Italy and Truman Capote throws a party. That's where we meet this beautiful and atmospheric novel's main characters, Tennessee Williams and Frank Merlo. Add a young Swedish starlet whose own story extends to modern day New York. The glitterati and the literati mingle, as do the fact and fiction, in this heartbreaking novel by this marvelous novelist.

“Make yourself an Aperol Spritz (or an entire pitcher) and find a comfortable chair because you’re going to spend the afternoon reading Leading Men by Christopher Castellani. Tennessee Williams was a genius — charming, brilliant, and powerful — but he was hell to live with and even harder to love, a challenge even for the man who loved him best, Frank Merlo. Castellani’s fourth novel brings to life not only their fraught relationship, but also the gritty glamour of their time. It’s a rich and gorgeous party whose guests include Truman Capote, Luchino Visconti, and you. Fortunately, you have that Aperol Spritz. Salut!”
