'What I've found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany's. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there, not with those kind men in their nice suits'. Meet Holly Golightly - a free spirited, lop-sided romantic girl about town. With her tousled blond hair and upturned nose, dark glasses and chic black dresses, Holly is a style sensation wherever she goes. Her apartment rocks to Martini-soaked parties and she plays hostess to millionaires and gangsters alike. Yet Holly never loses sight of her ultimate dream - to find a real life place like Tiffany's that makes her feel at home. Full of sharp wit and exuberant, larger-than-life characters which vividly capture the restless, madcap era of 1940s New York, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" will make you fall in love, perhaps for the first time, with a book.

Nic nie wiedziałam o tej skromnej powieści oprócz tego, że na jej podstawie powstał całkiem sławny film. Można by w sumie powiedzieć, że bardziej zachwycono się pierwszoplanową autorką, Audrey Hepburn, niż samym filmem. Sięgnęłam po tę książkę z chęcią przeczytania osławionej historii, teraz zacieka...

Ho sempre associato questo romanzo all'immagine bon ton di Audrey Hepburn, interprete principale nell'omonimo film, come credo un po' tutti noi. In realtà, la protagonista del libro, Holly, è un personaggio piuttosto articolato e tormentato, con dolori e sofferenze nascoste che cerca di controllare ...
