    Too bad that this is an unfinished novel I could have given this at least 4 stars.According to Wiki, Capote was not able to finish this novel because he got busy with the stardom In Cold Blood 4 stars gave him In 1966, he signed a contract with Random House to write this book with January 1st 1968 as the delivery date He missed the date and the contract was renegotiated in 1969 with 1973 as the new delivery date He missed again so it was moved further to 1974 Missed again so on to 1977 Missed ag [...]

    Why do people see shrinks To tell someone their most secret woes and stories They don t expect or get answers They just wanna Let Go Famous People, it seems, revealed all to Capote and were not happy when he put their tales in a book He was blacklisted by Society after some chapters appeared in Esquire, and never finished what would have been a sensationally good novel Capote was mortal Hecared what people thought.

    There s a game that has various names the one I learned during childhood is Gossip whispered words transmitted from one mouth to the nearest ear until the last participant reveals what s he heard The game may be instructive or entertaining or both or neither In any case, unlike real gossip, the game is generally harmless but game or gossip the product of the process is distortion Answered Prayers is not what it is nor what it was supposed to be For starters, it s a part, not the whole, that was [...]

    Whatever possessed Capote to turn on his lifelong friends, like Jackie O and her sister, Lee Raziwill, William and Babe Paley, and the rest of the New York social set is beyond me The fact that this novel was contracted for in 1966 and remained unpublished until after his death, says much about his ambivalence towards the project At the same time, Capote spent many years being the lapdog to moneyed New Yorkers, wined and dined at the finest restaurants before going back to his room at the YMCA H [...]

    Would you care to hear a truly vile story Really vomitous Not going to lie that s exactly what I came for But I leave it feeling uncomfortably complicit in Capote s bitter spite His incisive descriptions are wielded here less like a scalpel and like a melee weapon, inflicting as much gleeful cruelty as possible, and it became the grotesquerie that kept me reading rather than the prose itself this is Capote past his prime and he knew it OF COURSE it was entertaining was also Capote s schadenfreu [...]

    Answered Prayers is one of the few works of Capote s I haven t read, this and Music for Chameleons, which is still on my list If you have never read anything by Capote or have only read In Cold Blood, I d advise you to steer clear of this one Start with one of his short stories may I suggest Children on Their Birthdays Miriam is also good, very Southern Gothic, as is A Christmas Memory that one made me ugly cry or perhaps Breakfast at Tiffany s or Other Voices Other Rooms This work is only reall [...]

    This is my favorite Capote book even over Other Voices, Other Rooms Perhaps because it IS unfinished and shrouded in such mystery, despair, potential, and ultimately dissolution I reread it every couple years Was Capote blacklisted because he was telling tales outside of school, or because he revealed the glitterati for what they were, hypocrites and debauches A novel that raises questions as it moves to conclusion Answered Prayers indeed

    As truth is nonexistent, it can never be anything but illusion but illusion, the by product of revealing artifice, can reach the summits nearer the unobtainable peak of Perfect Truth For example, female impersonators The impersonator is in fact a man truth , until he recreates himself as a woman illusion and of the two, the illusion is the truer.I learned of Answered Prayers while reading The Swans of Fifth Avenue, and although it s an unfinished novel , the history behind this book just might b [...]

    Why I picked up what some consider to be Truman Capote s worst work is to this day a mystery to me I was at Alias East Bookstore on Brand, and I had 7 credit Due that I didn t want to hold on to a credit in my pocket for the next week or so, decided on this as a mood purchase Also I recently got back from New York City, and I wanted to read something classic from Manhattan aesthetic My understanding is that Answered Prayers was a novel that Capote never finished, but talked about consistently o [...]

    Capote s unfinished roman clef has its moments, when the snark is enjoyable and the cattiness chuckleworthy But the impression I was left with is one of subdued disgust how much of the doings of a bisexual hustler can you absorb before you need to imbibe some Willa Cather, or Cotton Mather, as a palate cleanser Key P.B Jones Truman CapoteAlice Lee Langman Katherine Ann PorterKate McCloud an amalgam of women, including Mona Bismarck Mrs Harrison Williams , Ann Woodward, Pamela Churchill, and Cap [...]

    I wasn t expecting too much from this book since I knew it was an unfinished work, but even so I was a little disappointed It probably should not have been published I also couldn t see how the final piece in the book, La Cote Basque could have caused such a scandal when first published It caused Capote to be ostracized by all of his society friends, but it seemed awfully tame in this spill your secrets at all times age.

    David Corvine
    Enjoyed reading it but it really was too little, too late Camp, malicious, gossipy, meandering, this work only hints at the opus that it might have been.

    Crude, self indulgent, and worse boring.

    I love Truman Capote And I love his self mythology almost as much as his writing That said, this was a bit of a disaster, and unworthy of being the last book of a man who had a lot of genius I read a review of this book that said it was written as his internal editor was collapsing and that feels super true.

    Every novel is a form of catharsis in one way or another It s the deal we make when we buy a book if the author packages their woes, hopes and gripes well and in an entertaining way, then we will patiently listen and even enjoy ourselves With all the reader oriented writing Truman did in his career, in the final analysis it s clear that he ultimately did not understand for whom he was writing In Answered Prayers we see the world through Truman s eyes as he must have experienced life on earth fro [...]

    I recently read an article about Truman Capote and decided to read this unfinished manuscript The title is a quote from St Teresa More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones This is the first three chapters that were published in magazines causing his estrangement from New York Society and his many benefactors CNN s Anderson Cooper has said his Mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, was very hurt by the thinly veiled portrayal of her in the third chapter La Cote Basque she never forgave h [...]

    Hilarious Rife with only sometimes veiled gossip about real life NYC luminaries so salacious it makes the mouth water, this is uniquely inspired prose from a true American master whose career and life were summarily destroyed by the precious text, hence unfinished Not sure how it reads to someone who doesn t know their history, because I know mine And, to me, this is a very special historical relic If you know your NYC literary cinematic socialite history and or love Capote, DO NOT MISS THIS WOR [...]

    It s an unfinished novel, so I can t be too harsh, but I m not sure I understood what it was even about or what the controversy that surrounded it was about either The whole thing is meant to scandalize the reader with details of gay prostitutes and people publicly urinating on others, or celebrities talking about who slashes their wrists, but there s no point Just meant to shock without purpose And not written well After seeing Capote, it made me wonder if the author was just a deeply troubled [...]

    Wanted to read this since it figures prominently in the last book I read, The Swans of Fifth Avenue Being unfinished, it suffers from being a bit disjointed, but still has enough to warrant the quick read.

    Reading this book was like being a guest at a long and tedious dinner party in which people try to be interesting by telling a succession of stories about other people that they think others will find fabulous, dahling but, unfortunately they re not A few are modestly interesting, but most of them are dull or rely upon some supposedly shocking or gross twist At one point I felt very much like the book s protagonist, who is unable to continue eating his dinner due to a particularly stomach turnin [...]
