"Breakfast at Tiffany's" is probably the best introduction to Capote's work. Holly Golightly represents a figure that so many millions of people have come to Manhattan to try to become. Capote's ability to sustain this dream in prose, even though Holly is not much more than a stylish whore, is what has kept this short, breezy-yet-tragic postwar novel in print for over 50 years. A real classic.
