Breakfast at Tiffany’s

December 10th, 2002

Truman Capote


Capote weaves a beautiful tale of a unique personality. Holly Golightly is such a deplorably lovable character that men cannot help but fall endlessly in love with her. As the narrator recounts the times he spent with Holly I could not help but compare the power of her personality to that of a girl I once knew—she could get anything she wanted from almost any man but no matter how much they tried none of them could ever posses her or her love wholly. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is easy to read but filled with meaning and wit. And that damn scene with the cat will rip your heart out!
