#413 - Truman Capote Autograph Letter Signed Estimate: $1,000+

Capote writes about In Cold Blood and the Breakfast at Tiffany's film

ALS signed “Truman,” two pages on two adjoining sheets, 5.5 x 8.5, October 16, 1961. Handwritten letter to newspaper columnist Leonard Lyons, in part: "So: you came to Spain, and did not come to visit, or forewarn in any way?! Actually, I don’t blame you; it’s a very dull place, this, and my life is among the dullest of all. However, my book is something more than half done—by the way, whoever told you that the title was 'Your Day Ends At 2 PM' was very misinformed. The title is: 'In Cold Blood.' Slim sent me the reviews of the “Breakfast-” film; they seemed rather good. Did you see it? I have to go again to Kansas sometime this winter (in connection with the book) and so will be a few days in New York—and will, I hope, at least get a glimpse of you." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in Capote's hand, incorporating his surname ("Capote") in the return address on the flap. A remarkable letter referring to both his most famous titles.
