A Swiss publisher named Peter Haag unearthed several of Truman Capote’s (pictured, via) lost writings. Haag made this discovery while researching at the New York Public Library.
Four short fiction pieces have been translated into German and featured in a publication called ZEITmagazin. Random House will release the English edition of this new Capote collection, which contains 20 stories and 12 poems, in December 2015. Executive editor David Ebershoff is editing the book
Here’s more from The New York Times: “Capote, who died in 1984, at 59, is believed to have written these works between the time he was 11 and 19, although not all are dated. Mr. Haag, whose house, Kein & Aber, based in Zurich, publishes Capote in German, said he and Anuschka Roshani, Capote’s German-language editor, came across the writings on one of their frequent trips to the New York library’s manuscripts and archives division looking for clues to the fate of Capote’s unfinished novel, Answered Prayers.”
