Truman Capote Auction Honors Spirit Of Author

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Fans of author Truman Capote will have soon have an opportunity to own a piece of literary history.

That’s because his personal belongings are being sold in a public auction in New York City on November 9.

Truman trinkets up for grabs include his MasterCard, a tuxedo he wore to his Black and White ball and a nylon windbreaker with a VIP drink coupon from Studio 54 still in the pocket.

And, of course, his trademark thick black glasses will also be on the auction block with the starting price around $600.

However, spokesman Levi Morgan says it’s Capote’s personal manuscripts that are getting the most buzz, especially a document he wrote for Joanne Carson which documents how she and husband Johnny met.

A public viewing of the items is happening on Friday (Oct. 6) in San Francisco and Los Angeles and Morgan says West Coast buyers will have an opportunity to participate in the auction come November.
