Description



About the Book



This volume includes three of Capote's best-known stories, "House of Flowers", "A Diamond Guitar", and "A Christmas Memory", in addition to his bestselling novel, Breakfast at Tiffany, the popular story of Holly Golightly--"a cross between Lolita and Auntie Mame" (Time).



Book Synopsis



Holly Golightly knows that nothing bad can ever happen to you at Tiffany's. In this seductive, wistful masterpiece, Capote created a woman whose name has entered the American idiom and whose style is a part of the literary landscape--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.



Review Quotes




"Truman Capote is the most perfect writer of my generation. He writes the best sentences word for word, rhythm upon rhythm."--Norman Mailer
