Why Truman Capote (Almost) Wrote Answered Prayers

William Todd Schultz

Inner Lives

  • The first psychobiography of Truman Capote
  • The first book to look closely and carefully at Answered Prayers, Capote's final, unfinished novel, a book perplexing for its element of self-destructiveness
  • Explores the subject of writing as self-destruction as opposed to self-therapy, and the relationship between writers and high society
