It's New York in the 1940s, where the martinis flow from cocktail hour till breakfast at Tiffany's. And nice girls don't, except, of course, Holly Golightly. Pursued by Mafia gangsters and playboy millionaires, Holly is a fragile eyeful of tawny hair and turned-up nose, a heart-breaker, a perplexer, a traveller, a tease. She is irrepressibly 'top banana in the shock department', and one of the shining flowers of American fiction. This edition also contains three stories: 'House of Flowers', 'A Diamond Guitar' and 'A Christmas Memory'. 'One of the twentieth century's most gorgeously romantic fictions.' Daily Telegraph

Far darker and more disturbing than the fizzy Hepburn screen version, this examination of an irresistible and amoral young woman on the make in Manhattan is a masterpiece of characterization and dialogue. Capote packs in humour, pathos and wicked observation. (Kirkus UK)
