Answered prayers

Although Truman Capote's last, unfinished novel offers a devastating group portrait of the high and low society of his time. 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 COte 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.

  • "Un roman inachevé, peut-être le plus célèbre des livres inachevés de la littérature américaine, que T. Capote avait annoncé plus de vingt ans avant sa mort en 1984. Le héros en est P. B. Jones, individu amoral et bisexuel, échappé d'un orphelinat à l'âge de 13 ans. Cette édition inclut huit lettres inédites de l'auteur à propos de son livre."
  • "The three completed chapters of Capote's unfinished novel, focusing on P.B. Jones, an amoral bisexual who has tumbled from the jet-set heights, are accompanied by an introduction by the editor."
