This Penguin Classic is the result of a creative collaboration between Bill Amberg and the world's favourite publisher. It is one in a series of six luxury leather-bound titles. It's New York in the 1940s, where the martinis flow from cocktail-hour to breakfast at Tiffany's. And nice girls don't, except, of course, Holly Golightly. Pursued by Mafia gangsters and playboy millionaires, 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 department', and one of the shining flowers of American fiction.

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 ...
This is not really a proper review, just some thoughts.The edition I read had the additional short stories at the end, but by the time I finished Breakfast I was absolutely sick of Capote. That's saying something, considering it was only a little over 100 pages. I couldn't even force myself to finis...
