Breakfast at Tiffany's
and Three Stories
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 naiveté 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.
"Truman Capote is the most perfect writer of my generation. He writes the best sentences word for word, rhythm upon rhythm."-Norman Mailer
