“We were busy trying to find the manuscript to [unfinished novel] ‘Answered Prayers,’ which we never found,” Schwartz tells The Post.
As for the rest of the author’s papers, they were skimmed, boxed and given to the New York Public Library, at Capote’s request.
Since then, the 39 boxes have been the property of the Library’s Manuscripts and Archives Division on 42nd Street, stored in a windowless vault beneath Bryant Park.
In 2013, a Swiss editor named Peter Haag was going through the material when he came across several short stories Capote had written in his teens and early 20s. Aside from those that had been published in Capote’s high school literary magazine, none of the stories had seen print.
