Truman Capote was ruined when he published his society friends’ secrets. Was Answered Prayers worth it?

Retrieved on: 
Friday, February 16, 2024

In November 1975, Truman Capote, the proudly gay author of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and In Cold Blood, unveiled the hotly anticipated second instalment of his unpublished novel, Answered Prayers.

Key Points: 
  • In November 1975, Truman Capote, the proudly gay author of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and In Cold Blood, unveiled the hotly anticipated second instalment of his unpublished novel, Answered Prayers.
  • Capote ended his days a social pariah in his former New York society circles, incapacitated by a lifetime of prodigious substance abuse.
  • The story to blame, La Côte Basque, 1965, takes its title from its setting: an achingly fashionable French restaurant in Manhattan.
  • However, Mrs. Hopkins was une autre chose: a sensation to unsettle the suavest Côte Basque client.
  • Mrs. Kennedy and her sister had elicited not a murmur, nor had the entrances of Lauren Bacall and Katharine Cornell and Clare Booth Luce.
  • However, Mrs. Hopkins was une autre chose: a sensation to unsettle the suavest Côte Basque client.

The real-life ‘Mrs. Bang-Bang’

  • There was talk of the spate of burglaries that had recently occurred in the area.
  • Ann, who suffered from insecurity and social anxiety, drank more than usual.
  • Returning home with her husband, she washed down some sleeping pills and went to bed, not long after midnight.
  • At two in the morning, Ann was woken by the sound of her dog growling.

‘What I’m writing is true’

  • Regardless of whether he truly appreciated this, it seems fair to say Capote’s encounter with Ann Woodward made quite the impression on him.
  • Capote’s conception of Answered Prayers, which he struggled with and talked about for decades, developed over time.
  • In his monumental novel-cycle Remembrance of Things Past, Proust scrutinised the social machinations of the Parisian upper classes at the turn of the 20th century.
  • Capote conceived of his project – which took shape as a roman à clef – in equivalent terms.
  • What I’m writing is true, it’s real and it’s done in the very best prose style that I think any American writer could possibly achieve.
  • […] If Proust were an American living now in New York, this is what he would be doing.
  • What I’m writing is true, it’s real and it’s done in the very best prose style that I think any American writer could possibly achieve.
  • as is generally conceded, a beautiful girl of twelve or twenty, while she may merit attention, does not deserve admiration.

Masturbation, misogyny, murder

  • At the start of January 1966, Capote signed a contract with Random House for a novel titled Answered Prayers.
  • However, by the time he actually sat down to write the book, he was already under a great deal of pressure.
  • Masturbation, menstruation, misogyny, murder.
  • Readers who thought they were getting a finely wrought piece of social critique were left scratching their heads in bemusement.

Was the book any good?


With the benefit of hindsight, I think the overwhelming majority missed the memo when it came to Answered Prayers.

  • By the same token, it is clear Answered Prayers responds to (and even builds on) advances made in his earlier work.
  • Gossip can serve a positive, even joyous function: it is a “social activity which produces and maintains the filiations” of community.
  • To put this another way: if used in a strategic and appropriate fashion, gossip can bring people together.
  • It can help to build and sustain social groupings predicated on the basis of shared knowledge (of sexual matters).
  • Consider Unspoiled Monsters, the first chapter in the posthumously published book.
  • If he had been absolutely factual, it would have been less believable but […] it might have been better.

Settling scores

  • In part, he was looking to settle scores.
  • Try as he might, Capote, who claimed his intentions had been misunderstood, couldn’t win the swans back over.
  • As chance, or maybe fate would have it, he died at exactly the same age as Ann Woodward.
  • Given how much they despised each other, I can’t help but wonder what Capote and Woodward would have made of such dismal symmetries.

From Coke cans to shoes to menus: what’s behind the rise in personalised products?

Retrieved on: 
Friday, February 16, 2024

In a world where carbon copies of products are everywhere, retailers have to make their products stand out and provide customers with a unique purchasing experience.

Key Points: 
  • In a world where carbon copies of products are everywhere, retailers have to make their products stand out and provide customers with a unique purchasing experience.
  • The need to be different is even greater at a time consumers are being careful about what they spend.

How businesses learn what consumers want

  • Similarly, entertainment streaming platforms Netflix and Spotify analyse their users’ viewing and listening history to understand their preferences and recommend new content.
  • Coke’s Share-a-Coke campaign, unveiled in Australia in 2011, was a successful example of the bond brands can create with consumers just by adding a person’s name to the product.
  • The company branded its bottles and cans with the 150 most popular names in Australia and urged consumers to share a Coke with someone whose name adorned the label.


Nike produces custom shoes in thousands of styles, colours and icon combinations as they continue to acquire data integration platforms that help speed up the collection and analysis of consumer data.

Consumers want more from their shopping experience

  • It often resulted in personalised store interactions between salespeople and VIP customers, or tailoring store services.
  • But the digital age has made personalisation accessible to all consumers, not just the high end.
  • This feeling of psychological ownership results from designing your “own” product and can lead to greater value and brand love.

Why personalisation works for the big brands

  • Personalising experiences, when offered to millions of customers, make it difficult for competitors to imitate, especially when brands use proprietary technology.
  • Personalisation also means less waste as brands produce what consumers actually want rather than what they think consumers want.


However, using predictive algorithms to help brands analyse past behaviours (what you and others like you have bought/watched) and come up with choices (at scale) can be imperfect. Dating app Tinder’s reliance on algorithms to decide which photos users see has been criticised as flawed with very low reciprocal interest rates between users “swiping right”. Understanding human behaviour requires intuition alongside algorithms.

If personalisation isn’t new, then why the sudden hype?

  • The digital revolution brought an influx of consumer data, but despite early algorithms, it was difficult for companies to make sense of large amounts of raw data.
  • Big brands like Nike and L’Oreal have the right formula for personalisation and their customers are enjoying a unique experience.
