The rumor this past spring was that 70 Willow Street, the Brooklyn Heights beauty once occupied by Truman Capote, had two offers. But nothing's real until the deal closes, and at the Capote house, it hasn't. In fact, the price just got chopped again, by nearly $1 million. The new ask: $14.995 million. A far cry from the cold-blooded $18 million the home originally hoped to fetch. Maybe Capote's house and another writerly abode we know should compare notes.
