Truman Capote’s brilliant, crisp writing, his colorful personality, and his craving for attention peaked in his drive to associate with the heights and riches of the social elite. He was allowed to gaze behind their masks. They gave him what he craved—if not love, at least a surrogate: their fascinated draw to his charisma. All the while, he was gathering material for his long-promised and self-proclaimed masterpiece, Answered Prayers. In TRU, Capote grapples with the self-inflicted loss of some of his super rich friends that he’d gutted through a published excerpt from Answered Prayers. And, it has the mirror effect of baring himself in much the same way as he had revealed them.
