Read full description of the books Preghiere esaudite:

«Si versano più lacrime per le preghiere esaudite che per quelle non accolte». Le preghiere del grande scrittore americano che la Fortuna ha voluto esaudire sono quelle di diventare ricco e famoso; ed è appunto del mondo di artisti e miliardari, di politici e parassiti, di perversi e di candidi inebetiti, o, se si preferisce, del jet-set, che parla quest'ultimo romanzo incompiuto di Capote.
Il protagonista, P.B. Jones, è massaggiatore, intrattenitore ambiguo e imprevedibile nonché scrittore in via d'affermazione, intento alla stesura delle vicende che ci vengono narrate: «E, se devo essere sincero, continuo a pensare che forse, se cambierò la maggior parte dei nomi, potrò pubblicare questo come un romanzo». Per la verità Capote di nomi ne ha cambiati ben pochi tra i tantissimi che ricorrono: con voluttà furiosa costringe a sfilare vizi e debolezze del gran mondo, da Greta Garbo a Cecil Beaton, dal principe Ruspali a Sartre, da Andy a Salinger, a Niarchos…
Ma il senso di questo libro non si consuma nel gioco vorticoso di dialoghi inauditi, nell'acutezza vendicativa della demistificazione, perché è infine una spietata resa dei conti dello scrittore Capote con se stesso. «Preghiere esaudite: un libro sulla verità come illusione: poiché la verità non esiste, non può essere altro che illusione ─ ma l'illusione, questo sottoprodotto dell'artificio rivelatore, può raggiungere le sommità più vicine alla vetta inaccessibile della Verità Perfetta».

Read information about the author

Ebook Preghiere esaudite read Online! Truman Capote was an American writer whose non-fiction, stories, novels and plays are recognised literary classics, including the novella Breakfast at Tiffany's (1958) and In Cold Blood (1965), which he labeled a "non-fiction novel." At least 20 films and TV dramas have been produced from Capote novels, stories and screenplays.

He was born as Truman Streckfus Persons to a salesman Archulus Persons and young Lillie Mae. His parents divorced when he was four and he went to live with his mother's relatives in Monroeville, Alabama. He was a lonely child who learned to read and write by himself before entering school. In 1933, he moved to New York City to live with his mother and her new husband, Joseph Capote, a Cuban-born businessman. Mr. Capote adopted Truman, legally changing his last name to Capote and enrolling him in private school. After graduating from high school in 1942, Truman Capote began his regular job as a copy boy at The New Yorker. During this time, he also began his career as a writer, publishing many short stories which introduced him into a circle of literary critics. His first novel, Other Voices, Other Rooms, published in 1948, stayed on The New York Times bestseller list for nine weeks and became controversial because of the photograph of Capote used to promote the novel, posing seductively and gazing into the camera.

In the 1950s and 1960s, Capote remained prolific producing both fiction and non-fiction. His masterpiece, In Cold Blood, a story about the murder of the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas, was published in 1966 in book form by Random House, became a worldwide success and brought Capote much praise from the literary community. After this success he published rarely and suffered from alcohol addiction. He died in 1984 at age 59.
