Im Die gezielten Indiskretionen führten zum Bruch jahrzehntelanger Freundschaften und zu Capotes gesellschaftlicher Ächtung. Wenn die Flunkereien oder Lügen ans Licht kommen, aus denen Capote seine Fassaden, seinen eigenen Mythos erschaffen hat.

He loved parties. He was was the king of his world, amazingly pairing off a tailored tuxedo and a mask that cost only 39 cents.

Individual style is what distinguishes one author from another. The previous statement is a consideration that is naturally applied to text, but at times is true of the writer as well.

With his bizarre speech inflections, Capote was a memorable person and he dressed for the role he had made for himself in a wide range of ways - half Ivy League, half Southern gentleman.

In his closet you could find: tuxedos and chalk-stripe suits, Fair Isle sweaters, polo shirts, cardigans, Prince Albert slipper, tweed topcoats.

Signature accessories: bow ties, Panama hats, alligator leather watch strap and thick framed eyeglasses which unfailingly express a sense of intelligence and erudition.

If you want to pay tribute to such a literary master and show your admiration for both his artistry and his fashion taste, you might as well choose a pair of Truman Capote eyeglasses.

It will definitely be worth your while. More than his literary accomplishment, he is also memorized and reputed for showing incredibly exquisite taste for glasses and sunglasses.

First Name. Last Name. Email Address. Ladies: Black or White dress; White mask; fan. Family of Four is Slain in Kansas". A little item just about like that.

And the community was completely nonplussed, and it was this total mystery of how it could have been, and what happened.

And I don't know what it was. I think it was that I knew nothing about Kansas or that part of the country or anything.

And I thought, "Well, that will be a fresh perspective for me" And I said, "Well, I'm just going to go out there and just look around and see what this is.

Maybe a crime of this kind is It has no publicity around it and yet had some strange ordinariness about it. So I went out there, and I arrived just two days after the Clutters' funeral.

The whole thing was a complete mystery and was for two and a half months. Nothing happened. I stayed there and kept researching it and researching it and got very friendly with the various authorities and the detectives on the case.

But I never knew whether it was going to be interesting or not. You know, I mean anything could have happened.

They could have never caught the killers. Or if they had caught the killers Or maybe they would never have spoken to me or wanted to cooperate with me.

But as it so happened, they did catch them. In January, the case was solved, and then I made very close contact with these two boys and saw them very often over the next four years until they were executed.

But I never knew Because it was a tremendous effort. The "nonfiction novel", as Capote labeled it, brought him literary acclaim and became an international bestseller, but Capote would never complete another novel after it.

A feud between Capote and British arts critic Kenneth Tynan erupted in the pages of The Observer after Tynan's review of In Cold Blood implied that Capote wanted an execution so the book would have an effective ending.

Tynan wrote:. We are talking, in the long run, about responsibility; the debt that a writer arguably owes to those who provide him — down to the last autobiographical parentheses — with his subject matter and his livelihood For the first time an influential writer of the front rank has been placed in a position of privileged intimacy with criminals about to die, and — in my view — done less than he might have to save them.

The focus narrows sharply down on priorities: Does the work come first, or does life? An attempt to help by supplying new psychiatric testimony might easily have failed: what one misses is any sign that it was ever contemplated.

In Cold Blood brought Capote much praise from the literary community, but there were some who questioned certain events as reported in the book.

Writing in Esquire in , Phillip K. Tompkins noted factual discrepancies after he traveled to Kansas and spoke to some of the same people interviewed by Capote.

In a telephone interview with Tompkins, Mrs. Meier denied that she heard Perry cry and that she held his hand as described by Capote.

In Cold Blood indicates that Meier and Perry became close, yet she told Tompkins she spent little time with Perry and did not talk much with him. Tompkins concluded:.

Capote has, in short, achieved a work of art. He has told exceedingly well a tale of high terror in his own way.

But, despite the brilliance of his self-publicizing efforts, he has made both a tactical and a moral error that will hurt him in the short run.

By insisting that "every word" of his book is true he has made himself vulnerable to those readers who are prepared to examine seriously such a sweeping claim.

True crime writer Jack Olsen also commented on the fabrications:. I recognized it as a work of art, but I know fakery when I see it," Olsen says.

His criticisms were quoted in Esquire , to which Capote replied, "Jack Olsen is just jealous. It made true crime an interesting, successful, commercial genre, but it also began the process of tearing it down.

I blew the whistle in my own weak way. I'd only published a couple of books at that time — but since it was such a superbly written book, nobody wanted to hear about it.

Alvin Dewey , the Kansas Bureau of Investigation detective portrayed in In Cold Blood , later said that the last scene, in which he visits the Clutters' graves, was Capote's invention, while other Kansas residents whom Capote interviewed have claimed they or their relatives were mischaracterized or misquoted.

Another work described by Capote as "nonfiction" was later reported to have been largely fabricated.

In a piece in the Sunday Times , reporters Peter and Leni Gillman investigated the source of "Handcarved Coffins", the story in Capote's last work Music for Chameleons subtitled "a nonfiction account of an American crime".

They found no reported series of American murders in the same town which included all of the details Capote described — the sending of miniature coffins, a rattlesnake murder, a decapitation, etc.

Instead, they found that a few of the details closely mirrored an unsolved case on which investigator Al Dewey had worked.

Their conclusion was that Capote had invented the rest of the story, including his meetings with the suspected killer, Quinn. Capote was openly homosexual.

In his book, "Dear Genius Although Capote's and Dunphy's relationship lasted the majority of Capote's life, it seems that they both lived, at times, different lives.

Their sometimes separate living quarters allowed autonomy within the relationship and, as Dunphy admitted, "spared [him] the anguish of watching Capote drink and take drugs".

Capote was well known for his distinctive, high-pitched voice and odd vocal mannerisms, his offbeat manner of dress, and his fabrications.

He often claimed to know intimately people whom he had in fact never met, such as Greta Garbo. He professed to have had numerous liaisons with men thought to be heterosexual , including, he claimed, Errol Flynn.

He traveled in an eclectic array of social circles, hobnobbing with authors, critics, business tycoons, philanthropists , Hollywood and theatrical celebrities, royalty, and members of high society , both in the U.

Part of his public persona was a longstanding rivalry with writer Gore Vidal. Their rivalry prompted Tennessee Williams to complain: "You would think they were running neck-and-neck for some fabulous gold prize.

Although Capote never fully embraced the gay rights movement , his own openness about homosexuality and his encouragement for openness in others makes him an important player in the realm of gay rights.

Forster but had ignored the author's homosexuality. Solomon argues:. When Capote confronts the Trillings on the train, he attacks their identity as literary and social critics committed to literature as a tool for social justice, capable of questioning both their own and their society's preconceptions, and sensitive to prejudice by virtue of their heritage and, in Diana's case, by her gender.

Now more sought after than ever, Capote wrote occasional brief articles for magazines, and also entrenched himself more deeply in the world of the jet set.

Gore Vidal once observed, " Truman Capote has tried, with some success, to get into a world that I have tried, with some success, to get out of.

Radziwill was an aspiring actress and had been panned for her performance in a production of The Philadelphia Story in Chicago. Capote was commissioned to write the teleplay for a television production starring Radziwill: an adaptation of the classic Otto Preminger film Laura The adaptation, and Radziwill's performance in particular, received indifferent reviews and poor ratings; arguably, it was Capote's first major professional setback.

Radziwill supplanted the older Babe Paley as his primary female companion in public throughout the better part of the s. It was considered the social event of not only that season but of many to follow, with The New York Times and other publications giving it considerable coverage.

Capote dangled the prized invitations for months, snubbing early supporters like fellow Southern writer Carson McCullers as he determined who was "in" and who was "out".

Despite the assertion earlier in life that one "lost an IQ point for every year spent on the West Coast", he purchased a home in Palm Springs and began to indulge in a more aimless lifestyle and heavy drinking.

This resulted in bitter quarreling with Dunphy, with whom he had shared a nonexclusive relationship since the s. Their partnership changed form and continued as a nonsexual one, and they were separated during much of the s.

Capote never finished another novel after In Cold Blood. The dearth of new prose and other failures, including a rejected screenplay for Paramount Pictures 's adaptation of The Great Gatsby , were counteracted by Capote's frequenting of the talk show circuit.

He ultimately refused to write the article, so the magazine recouped its interests by publishing, in April , an interview of the author conducted by Andy Warhol.

The married father of three did not identify as homosexual or bisexual, perceiving his visits as being a "kind of masturbation". After consummating their relationship in Palm Springs, the two engaged in an ongoing war of jealousy and manipulation for the remainder of the decade.

Longtime friends were appalled when O'Shea, who was officially employed as Capote's manager, attempted to take total control of the author's literary and business interests.

Through his jet set social life Capote had been gathering observations for a tell-all novel, Answered Prayers eventually to be published as Answered Prayers: The Unfinished Novel.

The book, which had been in the planning stages since , was intended to be the American equivalent of Marcel Proust 's In Search of Lost Time and a culmination of the "nonfiction novel" format.

Initially scheduled for publication in , the novel was eventually delayed, at Capote's insistence, to Because of the delay, he was forced to return money received for the film rights to 20th Century Fox.

Capote spoke about the novel in interviews, but continued to postpone the delivery date. Capote permitted Esquire to publish four chapters of the unfinished novel in and Paley and Babe Paley, generated controversy.

The essays were intended to form the long opening section of the novel, they displayed a marked shift in narrative voice, introduced a more elaborate plot structure, and together formed a novella-length mosaic of fictionalized memoir and gossip.

The catty beginning to his still-unfinished novel, Answered Prayers , marks the catalyst of the social suicide of Truman Capote.

Many of Capote's female friends, whom he nicknamed his "swans", were featured in the text, some under pseudonyms and others by their real names.

The chapter is said to have revealed the dirty secrets of these women, [52] and therefore aired the "dirty laundry" of New York City's elite.

This woman, who is described as "an American married to a British chemicals tycoon and a lot of woman in every way", [54] is widely rumoured to be based on New York socialite Slim Keith.

A gossipy tale of New York's elite ensues. The characters of Gloria Vanderbilt and Carol Matthau are encountered first, the two women gossiping about Princess Margaret , Prince Charles and the rest of the British royal family.

An awkward moment then occurs when Gloria Vanderbilt has a run-in with her first husband and fails to recognize him.

It is only at Mrs. Matthau's reminder that Gloria realizes who he is. Both women brush the incident aside and chalk it up to ancient history.

The characters of Lee Radziwill and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis are then encountered when they walk into the restaurant together.

Sisters, they draw the attention of the room although they speak only to each other. Lady Coolbirth takes the liberty of describing Lee as "marvelously made, like a Tanagra figurine" and Jacqueline as "photogenic" yet "unrefined, exaggerated".

The character of Ann Hopkins is then introduced when she surreptitiously walks into the restaurant and sits down with a pastor. Ann Hopkins is likened to Ann Woodward.

Ina Coolbirth relates the story of how Mrs. Hopkins ended up murdering her husband. When he threatened to divorce her, she began cultivating a rumour that a burglar was harassing their neighbourhood.

The official police report says that while she and her husband were sleeping in separate bedrooms, Mrs. Hopkins heard someone enter her bedroom.

In her panic, she grabbed her gun and shot the intruder; unbeknownst to her the intruder was in fact her husband, David Hopkins or William Woodward, Jr.

Ina Coolbirth suggests however, that Mr. Hopkins was in fact shot in the shower; such is the wealth and power of the Hopkins' family that any charges or whispers of murder simply floated away at the inquest.

An incident regarding the character of Sidney Dillon or William S. Paley is then discussed between Jonesy and Mrs.

Sidney Dillon is said to have told Ina Coolbirth this story because they have a history as former lovers. One evening while Cleo Dillon Babe Paley was out of the city, in Boston, Sidney Dillon attended an event by himself at which he was seated next to the wife of a prominent New York Governor.

The two began to flirt and eventually went home together. While Ina suggests that Sidney Dillon loves his wife, it is his inexhaustible need for acceptance by haute New York society that motivates him to be unfaithful.

Sidney Dillon and the woman sleep together, and afterwards Mr. Dillon discovers a very large blood stain on the sheets, which represents her mockery of him.

Dillon then spends the rest of the night and early morning washing the sheet by hand, with scalding water in an attempt to conceal his unfaithfulness from his wife who is due to arrive home the same morning.

In the end, Dillon falls asleep on a damp sheet and wakes up to a note from his wife telling him she had arrived while he was sleeping, did not want to wake him, and that she would see him at home.

In the late s, Capote was in and out of drug rehabilitation clinics, and news of his various breakdowns frequently reached the public.

In , talk show host Stanley Siegel did an on-air interview with Capote, who, in an extraordinarily intoxicated state, confessed that he had been awake for 48 hours and when questioned by Siegel, "What's going to happen unless you lick this problem of drugs and alcohol?

One year later, when he felt betrayed by Lee Radziwill in a feud with perpetual nemesis Gore Vidal , Capote arranged a return visit to Stanley Siegel's show, this time to deliver a bizarrely comic performance revealing an incident wherein Vidal was thrown out of the Kennedy White House due to intoxication.

Capote also went into salacious details regarding the personal life of Lee Radziwill and her sister, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Andy Warhol, who had looked up to the writer as a mentor in his early days in New York and often partied with Capote at Studio 54 , agreed to paint Capote's portrait as "a personal gift" in exchange for Capote's contributing short pieces to Warhol's Interview magazine every month for a year in the form of a column, Conversations with Capote.

Initially the pieces were to consist of tape-recorded conversations, but soon Capote eschewed the tape recorder in favor of semi-fictionalized "conversational portraits".

These pieces formed the basis for the bestselling Music for Chameleons Despite this, Capote was unable to overcome his reliance upon drugs and liquor and had grown bored with New York by the beginning of the s.

After the revocation of his driver's license the result of speeding near his Long Island residence and a hallucinatory seizure in that required hospitalization, Capote became fairly reclusive.

These hallucinations continued unabated and medical scans eventually revealed that his brain mass had perceptibly shrunk. On the rare occasions when he was lucid, he continued to promote Answered Prayers as being nearly complete and was reportedly planning a reprise of the Black and White Ball to be held either in Los Angeles or a more exotic locale in South America.

On a few occasions, he was still able to write. Gore Vidal responded to news of Capote's death by calling it "a wise career move".

Capote was cremated and his remains were reportedly divided between Carson and Jack Dunphy although Dunphy maintained that he received all the ashes.

Carson declined the offer. Crooked Pond was chosen because money from the estate of Dunphy and Capote was donated to the Nature Conservancy , which in turn used it to buy 20 acres around Crooked Pond in an area called "Long Pond Greenbelt".

A stone marker indicates the spot where their mingled ashes were thrown into the pond. Capote also maintained the property in Palm Springs , [64] a condominium in Switzerland that was mostly occupied by Dunphy seasonally, and a primary residence at United Nations Plaza in New York City.

Capote's will provided that after Dunphy's death, a literary trust would be established, sustained by revenues from Capote's works, to fund various literary prizes, fellowships and scholarships, including the Truman Capote Award for Literary Criticism in Memory of Newton Arvin , commemorating not only Capote but also his friend Newton Arvin , the Smith College professor and critic who lost his job after his homosexuality was revealed.

Capote's childhood is the focus of a permanent exhibit in Monroeville, Alabama's Old Courthouse Museum, covering his life in Monroeville with his Faulk cousins and how those early years are reflected in his writing.

Jennings Faulk Carter donated the collection to the Museum in The collection comprises 12 handwritten letters s—60s from Capote to his favorite aunt, Mary Ida Carter Jennings' mother.

Many of the items in the collection belonged to his mother and Virginia Hurd Faulk, Carter's cousin with whom Capote lived as a child.

The exhibit features many references to Sook, but two items in particular are always favorites of visitors: Sook's "Coat of Many Colors" and Truman's baby blanket.

Truman's first cousin recalls that as children, he and Truman never had trouble finding Sook in the darkened house on South Alabama Avenue because they simply looked for the bright colors of her coat.

Truman's baby blanket is a " granny square " blanket Sook made for him. The blanket became one of Truman's most cherished possessions, and friends say he was seldom without it — even when traveling.

According to Joanne Carson, when he died at her home on August 25, his last words were, "It's me, it's Buddy," followed by, "I'm cold. One of the things the movie does best is transport you back in time and into nature.

In the early scenes as Joel leaves his aunt's home to travel across the South by rickety bus and horse and carriage, you feel the strangeness, wonder and anxiety of a child abandoning everything that's familiar to go to a place so remote he has to ask directions along the way.

The landscape over which he travels is so rich and fertile that you can almost smell the earth and sky. Later on, when Joel tussles with Idabell Aubrey Dollar , a tomboyish neighbor who becomes his best friend a character inspired by the author Harper Lee , the movie has a special force and clarity in its evocation of the physical immediacy of being a child playing outdoors.

In , talk show host Stanley Siegel did an on-air interview with Capote, who, in an extraordinarily intoxicated state, confessed that he had been awake for 48 hours and when questioned by Siegel, "What's going to happen unless you lick this problem of drugs and alcohol?

One year later, when he felt betrayed by Lee Radziwill in a feud with perpetual nemesis Gore Vidal , Capote arranged a return visit to Stanley Siegel's show, this time to deliver a bizarrely comic performance revealing an incident wherein Vidal was thrown out of the Kennedy White House due to intoxication.

Capote also went into salacious details regarding the personal life of Lee Radziwill and her sister, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Andy Warhol, who had looked up to the writer as a mentor in his early days in New York and often partied with Capote at Studio 54 , agreed to paint Capote's portrait as "a personal gift" in exchange for Capote's contributing short pieces to Warhol's Interview magazine every month for a year in the form of a column, Conversations with Capote.

Initially the pieces were to consist of tape-recorded conversations, but soon Capote eschewed the tape recorder in favor of semi-fictionalized "conversational portraits".

These pieces formed the basis for the bestselling Music for Chameleons Despite this, Capote was unable to overcome his reliance upon drugs and liquor and had grown bored with New York by the beginning of the s.

After the revocation of his driver's license the result of speeding near his Long Island residence and a hallucinatory seizure in that required hospitalization, Capote became fairly reclusive.

These hallucinations continued unabated and medical scans eventually revealed that his brain mass had perceptibly shrunk.

On the rare occasions when he was lucid, he continued to promote Answered Prayers as being nearly complete and was reportedly planning a reprise of the Black and White Ball to be held either in Los Angeles or a more exotic locale in South America.

On a few occasions, he was still able to write. Gore Vidal responded to news of Capote's death by calling it "a wise career move".

Capote was cremated and his remains were reportedly divided between Carson and Jack Dunphy although Dunphy maintained that he received all the ashes.

Carson declined the offer. Crooked Pond was chosen because money from the estate of Dunphy and Capote was donated to the Nature Conservancy , which in turn used it to buy 20 acres around Crooked Pond in an area called "Long Pond Greenbelt".

A stone marker indicates the spot where their mingled ashes were thrown into the pond. Capote also maintained the property in Palm Springs , [64] a condominium in Switzerland that was mostly occupied by Dunphy seasonally, and a primary residence at United Nations Plaza in New York City.

Capote's will provided that after Dunphy's death, a literary trust would be established, sustained by revenues from Capote's works, to fund various literary prizes, fellowships and scholarships, including the Truman Capote Award for Literary Criticism in Memory of Newton Arvin , commemorating not only Capote but also his friend Newton Arvin , the Smith College professor and critic who lost his job after his homosexuality was revealed.

Capote's childhood is the focus of a permanent exhibit in Monroeville, Alabama's Old Courthouse Museum, covering his life in Monroeville with his Faulk cousins and how those early years are reflected in his writing.

Jennings Faulk Carter donated the collection to the Museum in The collection comprises 12 handwritten letters s—60s from Capote to his favorite aunt, Mary Ida Carter Jennings' mother.

Many of the items in the collection belonged to his mother and Virginia Hurd Faulk, Carter's cousin with whom Capote lived as a child. The exhibit features many references to Sook, but two items in particular are always favorites of visitors: Sook's "Coat of Many Colors" and Truman's baby blanket.

Truman's first cousin recalls that as children, he and Truman never had trouble finding Sook in the darkened house on South Alabama Avenue because they simply looked for the bright colors of her coat.

Truman's baby blanket is a " granny square " blanket Sook made for him. The blanket became one of Truman's most cherished possessions, and friends say he was seldom without it — even when traveling.

According to Joanne Carson, when he died at her home on August 25, his last words were, "It's me, it's Buddy," followed by, "I'm cold.

One of the things the movie does best is transport you back in time and into nature. In the early scenes as Joel leaves his aunt's home to travel across the South by rickety bus and horse and carriage, you feel the strangeness, wonder and anxiety of a child abandoning everything that's familiar to go to a place so remote he has to ask directions along the way.

The landscape over which he travels is so rich and fertile that you can almost smell the earth and sky. Later on, when Joel tussles with Idabell Aubrey Dollar , a tomboyish neighbor who becomes his best friend a character inspired by the author Harper Lee , the movie has a special force and clarity in its evocation of the physical immediacy of being a child playing outdoors.
