Truman Capote is from New Orleans. I’ve read Breakfast at Tiffany’s and In Cold Blood but I know so little about him plus I don’t have any special insights into those books so I decided to see what I could find on YouTube and right on top there’s this weird af interview with Johnny Carson



Here's his NYTimes obit:

https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nyti...?module=inline

Quote:
In ''Music for Chameleons,'' a collection of short nonfiction pieces published in 1980, Mr. Capote, in a ''self-interview,'' asked himself whether, at that point in his life, God had helped him. His answer: ''Yes. More and more. But I'm not a saint yet. I'm an alcoholic. I'm a drug addict. I'm homosexual. I'm a genius. Of course, I could be all four of these dubious things and still be a saint.''
He died from physical deterioration from drug and alcohol abuse and aging.

His mother committed suicide via sleeping tablets in 54 and his father served time in Sing Sing for embezzlement.



His mom



Something about him reminds me of Ian Curtis in a frightening way.

Check out Thou if you haven't heard them yet. NOLA's probably my favorite city when I have the luxury to go traveling.

NOLA's probably my favorite city to hang out and party in when I have the luxury to travel. There's a ****load of culture there and no open container law. Sacred Grinds is a badass little indie coffee shop next to a cemetery (you can literally sit in the back of the shop and look through the cemetery gates) with an absolutely delicious house brew special called a Dirty Zombie.

There's also a bar, I can't remember the name of it, but the place is supposed to be haunted due to a fire that happened there in the 40s or something like that. Due to that, it's mostly a tourist attraction. The people that work there though are really nice and they do (or used to do) some $1 specials on cheap beers if you're running low.

Be sure you have a Hand Grenade somewhere in NOLA, it's the customary "Welcome to NOLA" drink down the strip over by Bourbon Street. Everywhere in the French Quarter is also really beautiful. I honestly would say that it's probably one of the most artistic cities I've seen in the South.

Thou is probably the most exciting metal band in the world at the moment

If anybody has anything to say about any writer from Louisiana let it be said brothers and sisters.

I have a copy of The Awakening that I've never read and Tennessee Williams is a recognized playwright. That's all I got.

I read The Awakening a long time ago. Kate Chopin isn’t from Louisiana though. If you do read The Awakening, Robert Stone’s Children of Light compliments it well.

Dog Soldiers is also really good.
