From Our Editors

When she came to be in 1958, Holly Golightly, the irreverent cowgirl let loose in Manhattan, took readers by storm with her whirlwind of innocent confidence and wild insight. Budding from the pages of Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's: A Novel and Three Short Stories, Golightly is the darting embodiment of human anxiety, irregularity and fear. She traipses night to night and bed to bed without much stability beyond her breakfasts, which she spends in front of the display windows at the famous retailer's downtown flagship. In combination with House of Flowers, A Diamond Guitar and A Christmas Memory, three of Capote's most acclaimed shorts, the famous novel serves as the perfect example of its author's style.
