Author(s): Truman Capote
Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's is a brilliant glimmer of the excitement of 1940's New York. Holly Golightly - brashly beautiful with a slim black dress, a mysterious past and dark glasses over varicoloured eyes - entrances all the men she meets, including the young writer living above her, though her recklessness may yet catch up with her. Also containing three short stories, this edition shows the elegance and warmth of Capote's writing at its most flawless.
Truman Capote was born in New Orleans in 1924. He wrote both fiction and non-fiction - short stories, novels and novellas, travel writing, profiles, reportage, memoirs, plays and films. He died in California in 1984.
