Book Review
This is a great short novel about the story of Holly Golightly’s eccentric personality.  Holly is in her early 20’s and we see her live life as if the world will end tomorrow.  She dates older men, drinks, has sex whenever she pleases, shop lifts, rides horses in central park, and all that good stuff.  However, we all see it catch up to her and it leaves her soul lost.  This is a great escape story for anyone that yearns to be single, and somewhat intoxicated again. Interesting fact: Truman Capote actually wanted Marilyn Monroe to play Holly Golightly for the movie adaptation.  It would have been interesting to watch how that would have turned out!
