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.

Breakfast at Tiffany's is a novella that takes place during the World War II Era. It is written by Truman Capote. It is about a woman named Holly Golightly and a man she refers to as Fred living life in New York and looking for love. Holly is young and adventurous and constantly seeks fun and excitement. Fred is a shy writer who has grown highly fond by Holly and her adventurous nature. I really loved this little story. It was cute. It was scandalous. It was beautiful. It's really and truly a classic. I have to be honest though. I watched the movie before I read this book. Both were great though. It may just be a silly story to many people, but not to me. It's really cute and adorable. I feel that this story flows very nicely. The characters were developed properly. The conversations flowed properly. My only issue is that it wasn't long enough. That's my issue for all short stories and novellas though. I am the type of person that just enjoys the longer stories. I still read short stories and novellas though. I wouldn't say that Breakfast at Tiffany's is a must read, but I'd definitely recommend it. It's more targeted to the female audience, but I'm sure that there will be guys out there who will take enjoyment out of the book too. My best advice to anybody would be give it a shot. That's my advice with all books though.
