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.

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 ...
