Dr. Todd Schultz, Professor of Psychology, presents “Frying Fancy Fish: Why Truman Capote Sauteed the Jet Set in His Book Answered Prayers.” Todd edits a very interesting series of books at Oxford University Press in which noted scholars present psychological portraits of famous figures. Todd discusses both the series and his own most recent book.

Todd interviewed both friends and enemies of Capote for this very interesting study.
