Late writer Capote">Truman Capote has inspired a new permanent exhibition in Monroeville, Alabama, where rare photographs and a collection of his letters will go on display later this month (APR06). The Breakfast at Tiffany's writer, whose life was documented in this year's (06) Academy Award-winning biopic CAPOTE, spent two years in the town during his childhood, before his mother took him to New York City in 1924. The star's cousin JENNINGS FAULK CARTER has organised the exhibit, which will stand alongside celebrated novelist HARPER LEE's display, to help fans of the author understand his work. Carter, 79, has faced down criticism from other family members, insisting Capote's legacy should be celebrated: "I'm the only one that tried to accumulate the stuff that related to Truman and put it in a scrapbook." Capote died aged 59 in 1984.
