Vanity Fair will feature an unpublished Truman Capote story called “Yachts and Things” in its next issue.
The story is about two friends about to take “an idyllic three-week cruise in the Mediterranean aboard a friend’s chartered yacht.” The issue will hit New York and Los Angeles newsstands on November 1. Readers in other parts of the country can get the issue on November 6 both in print and iPad, Nook and Kindle format. Here’s more from the magazine:
[The] newly discovered work that appears to be an early draft of one of the unpublished chapters of Truman Capote’s Answered Prayers. Contributing editor Sam Kashner noticed the manuscript, entitled “Yachts and Things,” while sorting through Capote’s papers in the Manuscripts and Archives Division of the New York Public Library while researching that lost novel in progress and the scandal surrounding it. “Could Truman have been hiding parts of Answered Prayers, right under our noses?” Kashner asks in the introduction to the text, which appears alongside his report.
