Text Ý Breakfast at Tiffany's Ö Truman Capote

He shock department' and one of the shining flowers of American fictionThis edition also contains three stories 'House of Flowers' 'A Diamond Guitar' and 'A Christmas Memory' I’m struggling to figure out what makes this uite so great it could be Truman’s beautiful limpid style which winds its sentences through your inner ear so that you might think that language itself had been melted and turned into vanilla frosting or it could be that this is the sweet sad little tale of a guy who met this creature and got stuck permanently in the friend zone and kind of almost didn’t really mind because at least the friend zone was something and not nothing that’s how entranced he was or it could be that one of the major characters is a cat It could be that it’s funny and kind and that Holly says some really surprising things just to mention one that she thinks people of the same sex should be allowed to get married – in 1958 But this novelette is a small 100 page thing a drifting fragrance a single chord a glint a hello then goodbye too soon too soon – ah yes itself therefore being the perfect embodiment of the Holly Golightly experience So of course – that’s why
