Tracing the career of a writer of uncertain parentage and omnivorous erotic tastes, "Answered Prayers "careens from a louche bar in Tangiers to a banquette at La COte Basque, from literary salons to high-priced whorehouses. It takes in calculating beauties and sadistic husbands along with such real-life supporting characters as Colette, the Duchess of Windsor, Montgomery Clift, and Tallulah Bankhead. Above all, this malevolently finny book displays Capote at his most relentlessly observant and murderously witty.
