Capote’s ‘tortured life’ revealed in memoir
New York, June 22: Truman Capote may have sourced at least 20 films and television dramas, but the writer himself led a tortured life, claims a forthcoming memoir.
Edmund White recalled his chat with the Breakfast At Tiffany’s writer and his life in New York for a magazine piece in the memoir.
"All through the interview, Capote kept dashing out of the room to sniff more cocaine," the New York Post quoted White as saying.
"He went through phases of being sharp-witted and . . . other moments of mumbling incoherence, as if someone was alternately pumping air into [his] balloon and deflating it,” White added.
Capote apparently told White: "You`ll probably write some good books, but remember, it`s a horrible life."
