Unrelated to the art, but I am excited about this novel finding a publisher. I love how Capote captured the quintessential farm-to-city transformation of a 60s gal with Holly Golightly. It will be great to read what he has captured for the 1940s.Random House to Publish Early Capote Novel NEW YORK (AP) - An early, unreleased Truman Capote novel will be published next month by Random House Inc. "Summer Crossing," which Capote started in 1943 and later claimed to have destroyed, is the story of socialite Grady McNeil and her adventures in New York."Dashing, defiant, and irrepressibly carefree, the novel's heroine will remind readers of one of Truman Capote's most lasting creations, Holly Golightly in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's,'" Random House said Thursday in a statement.The manuscript of "Summer Crossing" was found last year at the bottom of a box of Capote manuscripts and photos that was consigned by a relative of the author's former house sitter.Capote, who died in 1984, had hired the sitter to look after his Brooklyn apartment while he was in Switzerland writing his classic true-crime book, "In Cold Blood," which came out in 1966.The writing of "In Cold Blood" is the subject of an upcoming feature film, "Capote," with Philip Seymour Hoffman in the starring role.
Very interesting work!Thanks for posting Annie.xoxo
Mel: This sounds great. There is a Capote film coming out soon plus another one wrapping up soon. Paltrow is playing Peggy Lee. I forget who is playing Babe Paley. Sandra Bullock is playing Harper Lee. Neela: Thanks N. I owe you an email.
