You can buy Truman Capote’s ashes

They’re being auctioned off as part of the estate of Joanne Carson, Johnny’s ex-wife, who died in 2015 and who had possession of them.

A Los Angeles-based auction house is hoping it can find a Truman Capote fan willing to part with a few thousand dollars in exchange for the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “In Cold Blood” author’s cremains…

Carson’s estate “didn’t know what to do with” the ashes, Julien’s Auctions Chief Executive Darren Julien told Vanity Fair, eventually deciding to auction them off along with some of Capote’s possessions, including a papier-mache parrot, a set of “risque photographs” and the polo shirt the author was wearing when he died.
