Publisher Description

Although Truman Capote's last novel was unfinished at the time of his death, its surviving portions offer a devastating group portrait of the high and low society of his time. • Includes the story La Cote Basque featured in the major FX series Feud: Capote Vs. the Swans.

"Prose that makes the heart sing and the narrative fly." —The New York Times Book Review


Tracing the career of a writer of uncertain parentage and omnivorous erotic tastes, Answered Prayers careens from a louche bar in Tangiers to a banquette at La Côte Basque, from literary salons to high-priced whorehouses. It takes in calculating beauties and sadistic husbands along with such real-life supporting characters as Colette, the Duchess of Windsor, Montgomery Clift, and Tallulah Bankhead. Above all, this malevolently finny book displays Capote at his most relentlessly observant and murderously witty.

Sample inadequate

It's Capote, so I trust that it's amazing, but the sample is all notes and introduction and indicia and blurbs. By the time you finally reach the book itself, the sample is done. How can you tell anything about the book when the sample is only two paragraphs long?
