Although Truman Capote’s last, unfinished novel offers a devastating group portrait of the high and low society of his time. Tracing the career of a writer of uncertain parentage and omnivorous erotic tastes, Answered Prayers careens from a louche bar in Tangiers to a banquette at La Côte Basque, from literary salons to high-priced whorehouses. It takes in calculating beauties and sadistic husbands along with such real-life supporting characters as Colette, the Duchess of Windsor, Montgomery Clift, and Tallulah Bankhead. Above all, this malevolently finny book displays Capote at his most relentlessly observant and murderously witty.

Es sollte sein Opus magnum werden, ein schonungsloses Sittenbild proustscher Dimension doch Capote konnte und wollte es nicht abschließen. Gleichwohl ist Erhörte Gebete sein konsequentestes Werk, eine giftgesättigte Abrechnung mit der feinen Gesellschaft. Hier schildert Capote die Reichen und Mächtigen, die Verrückten und Verruchten, all jene, die ihn jahrelang als ihr Schoßhündchen betrachtet hatten. Als das erste Kapitel des Schlüsselromans Mitte der Siebzigerjahre in Esquire abgedruckt wurde, erkannten Capotes Freunde, dass das Schoßhündchen durchaus auch zubeißen konnte: Plötzlich waren ihre intimsten Geheimnisse - vom Seitensprung bis zum vertuschten Mord - schwarz auf weiß nachzulesen. "Es ist sehr schwierig, Gentleman und Schriftsteller zu sein", hat W. Somerset Maugham einmal bemerkt. Mit Erhörte Gebete entschied sich Capote eindeutig für Letzteres.

In 1992, God had placed a vision in a grandmother's heart that if I would come to Johnson Street and teach the Bible to children His Word would supernaturally change their lives. She did not know when she asked me teach that one little boy in the first Bible Club would name the ministry Keeping Hope Alive, and it would become a non-profit Christian organization. The ministry would travel the world teaching children in orphanages and in the slums of Kenya about God's love, seeing over five-thousand children give their hearts to Jesus and touched by God's Presence. She did not know that when children start to pray that murders stop, parents get off drugs, and families are restored. The vision of one grandmother, Virginia Barbee, changed the world for Jesus. This book tells the stories of how God came and answered the prayers of the children with supernatural healings and miracles.

As I was being led to document and share the miracles, signs and wonders that the Lord our God in heaven had allowed me to witness throughout my life, I wondered . what was the first miracle that God had allowed me to be a witness to? Then I remembered, my aaka ("aah kaa" is an Inupiaq word meaning mom, but is used by many to reference a grandmother). If it wasn't for the intercession of praying aaka's (grandmothers) and the grace of God answering their prayers, where would many of us grandchildren be? I give God all the glory for what he has done for me and my family. I believe one of Gods desires is for us to achieve the purpose that he created us for. May God Bless each and everyone of you. Carolyn Edwards was born February 2nd 1961 at Tanana, Alaska and raised throughout Alaska all her life. Her grandparents were Horace and Gertrude Ahsogeak living nomadic lifestyles throughout the Alaskan north slope until settling in Barrow, Alaska around the 1940s.
