Adapted from the words and works of Truman Capote, Tru is set in the writer’s New York City apart-ment the week before Christmas 1975. An excerpt from Capote’s infamous unfinished roman à clef, Answered Prayers, recently has been published in Esquire. Having recognized thinly veiled versions of themselves, Manhattan socialites turn their backs on him. Alone and lonely, Capote—soothing himself with pills, vodka, cocaine, and chocolate truffles—muses about his checkered life and career.
