"Breakfast at Tiffany's" is probably the best introduction to Capote's work. Holly Golightly represents a figure that so many millions of people have come to Manhattan to try to become. Capote's ability to sustain this dream in prose, even though Holly is not much more than a stylish whore, is what has kept this short, breezy-yet-tragic postwar novel in print for over 50 years. A real classic.

breakfast at tiffany's is a classic that is so enjoyable that you forget that it is a classic. i love how holly golightly is always viewed from an outsiders perspective, she seems so tragic and yet so oddly contented and real. Capote wrote someone who was too much to be real but you viewed her as real anyway just because you wanted to. The other short stories were also fun quick well written reads but as the title suggests the best piece in the collection was by far Breakfast at Tiffany's.

In this seductive, wistful masterpiece, Truman Capote created a woman whose name 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 naivete continue to charm.
