Breakfast at Tiffany's: WITH House of Flowers (Penguin Modern Classics) by Truman Capote
awesomebooks.com
Immortalised by Audrey Hepburn's sparkling performance in the 1961 film of the same name, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is Truman Capote's timeless portrait of tragicomic cultural icon Holly Golightly, published in "Penguin Modern Classics". It's New York in the 1940s, where the martinis flow from cocktail hour till breakfast at Tiffany's. And nice girls don't, except, of course, for Holly Golightly: glittering socialite traveller, generally upwards, sometimes sideways and once in a while - down. Pursued by to Salvatore 'Sally' Tomato, the Mafia sugar-daddy doing life in Sing Sing and 'Rusty' Trawler, the blue-chinned, cuff-shooting millionaire man about women about town, Holly is a fragile eyeful of tawny hair and turned-up nose, a heart-breaker, a perplexer, a traveller, a tease. She is irrepressibly 'top banana in the shock deparment', and one of the shining flowers of American fiction. This edition also contains three stories: "House of Flowers", "A Diamond Guitar" and "A Christmas Memory". Truman Capote (1924-84) was born in New Orleans. He left school when he was fifteen and subsequently worked for The New Yorker, which provided his first - and last - regular job.He wrote both fiction and non-fiction - short stories, novels and novellas, travel writing, profiles, reportage, memoirs, plays and films; his other works include "In Cold Blood" (1965), "Music for Chameleons" (1980) and "Answered Prayers" (1986), all of which are published in "Penguin Modern Classics". If you enjoyed "Breakfast at Tiffany's", you might like Capote's "In Cold Blood", also available in "Penguin Modern Classics". "One of the twentieth century's most gorgeously romantic fictions." ("Daily Telegraph"). "The most perfect writer of my generation...I would not have changed two words of "Breakfast at Tiffany's"." ("Norman Mailer").  read more
