Breakfast at Tiffany's

In this seductive, wistful masterpiece, Truman Capote created a woman whose name has entered the American idiom and whose style is a part of the literary landscape. Holly Golightly knows that nothing bad can ever happen to you at Tiffany's; her poignancy, wit, and naïveté continue to charm.

This volume also includes three of Capote's best-known stories, “House of Flowers,” “A Diamond Guitar,” and “A Christmas Memory,” which the Saturday Review called “one of the most moving stories in our language.” It is a tale of two innocents—a small boy and the old woman who is his best friend—whose sweetness contains a hard, sharp kernel of truth.

A Reckless Survivor5 star

Most of us seem allured by the happy-go-lucky attitudes some people possess. It is not easy to let go and allow life to be. Yet, Holly "Go-lightly" seems to have it in her blood. She makes the best out of life, stumbles and pushes through. Reckless and inconsiderate, but also admirable. Holly's sense of detachment makes her one unique character. 55
