Missing manuscript …

 Director of a New Truman Capote Doc Has a Theory About His Long-Missing, Incendiary Last Novel. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
The case of Answered Prayers is one of literature’s great mysteries. After chapters of the novel were published in Esquire in 1975 and 1976, Capote became persona non grata among his longtime socialite friends, the “swans.” Slim Keith, Gloria Vanderbilt, and other wealthy, fashionable jet-setters never forgave him for stealing their gossip for a thinly veiled portrayal of their vanity, vacuousness, and marital turmoil.
