Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote

You know how you are sometimes told to read classics? Well this is one, and I am very happy I did.  It is brief, and you will read it in a few hours. It does however pack a very funny and gripping tale of the narrators relatively brief acquaintance with Holly Golightly, a young woman who manages to have an effect on everyone she meets as she strives up in society. The language is fantastic, the characters interesting, and the nineteen-fourties New York fascinating.
