By turns wistful and farcical, A House on the Heights vividly evokes a neighborhood Capote described as among Brooklyns splendid contradictions, a world of grand homes and dimly recalled gentility, of mysterious warehouses and cartoonish street thugs, of antiques and dowagers, a broad yard overhung with wisteria, and the famous Esplanade with its incomparable view—all rendered in Capotes deft and stylish prose.
