Overview

El protagonista de esta magistral novela corta, cuenta la historia de Holly Golightly -quizás el más seductor personaje creado por este maestro de la seducción que fue Truman Capote-. Ella es una antigua vecina y amiga suya, y narra desde que la conoce hasta que sale de su vida. Holly
la protagonista, es una chica divertida, inteligente, irreverente y fantasiosa, que se siente desterrada en todas partes pese al glamour que la rodea. Holly es atractiva sin ser guapa, y tras rechazar una carrera de actriz en Hollywood, se convierte en una estrella del Nueva York más sofisticado, bebiendo cocteles y rompiendo corazones. Parece ganarse la vida pidiendo suelto para sus expediciones al tocador en los restaurantes y clubes de moda, y vive rodeada de los tipos más disparatados, desde un mafioso que cumple condena en Sing Sing y al que visita semanalmente, hasta un millonario caprichoso de afinidades nazis, pasando por un viejo barman secretamente enamorado de ella. Mezcla de picardía e inocencia, de astucia y autenticidad, Holly vive en la provisionalidad permanente, sin pasado, no queriendo pertenecer a nada ni a nadie, sintiéndose desterrada en todas partes pese al glamour que la rodea, y soñando siempre en ese paraíso que para ella es Tiffany's, la famosa joyería neoyorquina.

Meet the Author

Truman Capote
When Truman Capote debuted on the New York literary scene in 1948, no one had seen anything quite like him. Capote soon became famous for his intensely readable and nuanced short stories, novels, and novellas, but he was equally famous as a personality, gadfly, and bon vivant -- not to mention as a crime writer. Capote’s much-imitated 1965 book, In Cold Blood, all but invented the narrative true-crime genre.

Biography

Truman Capote was a native of New Orleans, where he was born on September 30, 1924. His first novel, Other Voices, Other Rooms, was an international literary success when first published in 1948, and accorded the author a prominent place among the writers of America's postwar generation. He sustained this position subsequently with short-story collections (A Tree of Night, among others), novels and novellas (The Grass Harp and Breakfast at Tiffany's), some of the best travel writing of our time (Local Color), profiles and reportage that appeared originally in The New Yorker (The Duke in His Domain and The Muses Are Heard), a true-crime masterpiece (In Cold Blood), several short memoirs about his childhood in the South (A Christmas Memory, The Thanksgiving Visitor, and One Christmas), two plays (The Grass Harp and House of Flowers and two films (Beat the Devil and The Innocents).

Mr. Capote twice won the O.Henry Memorial Short Story Prize and was a member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters. He died in August 1984, shortly before his sixtieth birthday.
