Language: English Brand New. Golden Globe-winning actor Michael C. Hall ( Dexter, Six Feet Under ) performs Truman Capote s provocative, naturalistic masterstroke about a young writer s charmed fascination with his unorthodox neighbor, the American geisha Holly Golightly. Holly a World War II-era society girl in her late teens survives via socialization, attending parties and restaurants with men from the wealthy upper class who also provide her with money and expensive gifts. Over the course of the novella, the seemingly shallow Holly slowly opens up to the curious protagonist, who eventually gets tossed away as her deepening character emerges. Breakfast at Tiffany s, Truman Capote s most beloved work of fiction, introduced an independent and complex character who challenged audiences, revived Audrey Hepburn s flagging career in the 1961 film version, and whose name and style has remained in the national idiom since publication. Hall uses his diligent attention to character to bring our unnamed narrator s emotional vulnerability to the forefront of this American classic. N° de réf. du libraire
Synopsis : Holly Golightly, glittering socialite traveller, generally upwards, sometimes sideways and once in a while down. She's up all night drinking cocktails and breaking hearts. She's a shoplifter, a delight, a drifter, a tease. She hasn't got a past.She doesn't want to belong to anything or anyone. Not to 'Rusty' Trawler, the blue-chinned, cuff-shooting millionaire man about women about town. Not to Salvatore 'Sally' Tomato, the Mafia sugar-daddy doing life in Sing Sing. Not to a starving writer. Not even to her one-eyed rag-bag pirate of a cat. One day Holly might find somewhere she belongs. Until then she's travelling.
Critique: Truman Capote is the most perfect writer of my generation. He writes the best sentences word for word, rhythm upon rhythm. --Norman Mailer
