Book Description Random House, New York, 1958. Handsomely bound in finely woven yellow cloth stamped in gilt and black on the spine. Very clean and tight throughout; virtually unread.With bright blue topstaining. Dedicated to Truman's lover Jack Dunphy. In a price-clipped, original dust jacket designed by Ismar David with date code of "10/58" at the bottom of the front flap. With darkenbing and soiling to the spine; the white title is very faint, but "Truman Capote" and "Random House" are very clearly printed in bold black ink. Light soiling to the rear panel which features a charcoal drawing of Capote. With two short closed tears at the top edges. Overall, a very good copy of this classic novella in the scarce dust jacket with an uncommon signed/presentation by Capote: (Signed & Inscribed in black ink on the half -title page by Truman Capote: "For Norman good wishes from his friend Truman Capote" ). The 3 stories included are: House of Flowers, A Diamond Guitar, and A Christmas Memory Breakfast at Tiffany's is a novella by Truman Capote published in 1958. The main character, Holly Golightly, is one of Capote's best-known creations. In autumn 1943, the unnamed narrator becomes friends with Holly Golightly, who calls him "Fred", after her older brother. The two are both tenants in a brownstone apartment in Manhattan's Upper East Side. Holly (age 18–19) is a country girl turned New York café society girl. As such, she has no job and lives by socializing with wealthy men, who take her to clubs and restaurants, and give her money and expensive presents; she hopes to marry one of them. According to Capote, Golightly is not a prostitute but an "American geisha". Holly likes to shock people with carefully selected tidbits from her personal life or her outspoken viewpoints on various topics. Over the course of a year, she slowly reveals herself to the narrator, who finds himself fascinated by her curious lifestyle. The novella was loosely adapted into the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany's starring Audrey Hepburn and directed by Blake Edwards. The movie was transposed to circa 1960 rather than the 1940s, the period of the novella. In addition to this, at the end of the film the protagonist and Holly fall in love and stay together, whereas in the novella there is no love affair whatsoever— Holly just leaves the United States and the narrator has no idea what happened to her since then, except for a photograph of her with a tribe in Africa. Capote originally envisioned Marilyn Monroe as Holly, and lobbied the studio for her, but the film was done at Paramount, and though Monroe did independent films, including for her own production company, she was still under contract with Twentieth Century Fox, and had just completed Let's Make Love with Yves Montand.
