Writer Truman Capote was a prolific liar who lied about a lifelong friendship with Jackie Kennedy, according to a new book. In his second memoir, POINT TO POINT NAVIGATION, author and long-time foe Gore Vidal says Capote was extremely creative with the truth. He says, "(He) lived for gossip, and he was also a marvellous liar. No fact ever gave him pause. "Jackie Kennedy, whom he claimed to have known since childhood, actually met him at a lunch in New York just before the 1960 election. I warned her, 'Just remember all those scurrilous stories you found so interesting about other people he'll now start to invent about you.' "
