Truman Capote, New Orleans, 1980 - Truman Capote comes from the South, In New Orleans, I suggested an antebellum as a backdrop, but he said, "forget about antebellum, where I belong is on Bourbon Street." As we walked along, he pointed out a transvestite club, and stopping to see the show, he joined the performers on stage and had a good laugh. Later we went to what Capote called the most fantastic cemetery ever. In the bathroom in his hotel room I saw an open Bible, with the center cut out and full of cocaine.
