One of the best movies ever, and the perfect book to be reading while touring New York City for the first time.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is the story of a young woman who pretends she has all the money in the world, she can get any guy she wants, and she makes decisions based on a whim, when all she wants is to escape the life she’s really been hiding from.
I absolutely loved this book, maybe more than the movie. It’s been awhile since I watched the film but parts of the book were still unexpected and it was great to have a different perspective than what I remember.
The other great part about this book is how Capaote can create such different styles and genres of work. Only days before starting this book I finished In Cold Blood which is a different style altogether. I highly recommend this piece of work, watch the movie, then go to Tiffany’s in New York and experience the life in person.
