Publisher's Summary

Capote's previously lost and unpublished tale "Yachts and Things" was recently discovered by Vanity Fair contributing editor Sam Kasher in the Manuscripts and Archives Division of the New York Public Library. Written at the height of his career and socialite life, this short, thinly-veiled work of fiction tells the story of two friends about to take an "idyllic three-week cruise in the Mediterranean aboard a friend's chartered yacht".

So much delight packed into this wonderful little gem of a story. Reminds me of why I love Truman.
