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.
