The Strand's managing editor didn't start out looking for an unpublished short story by an author not known for being prolific.
But that's what he ended up doing.
Andrew Gulli was actually paging through the indexes of the Library of Congress for works by James M. Cain, he told NPR's Scott Detrow.
But as long as he was in the C section, he figured, why not also look for anything by Truman Capote?
Fate was smiling on him, because not only did a researcher turn up the short story "Another Day In Paradise," but the Capote estate also gladly lent a hand in the transcription and publication process.
Head to NPR to read or listen to a discussion of "Another Day In Paradise" and what makes it so special.
