To most sane Hollywood people, Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's, however brilliant, was unadaptable. It was, they noted, "a novel with no second act, a nameless gay protagonist, a motiveless drama, and an unhappy ending." Somehow, however, screenwriter George Axelrod and director Blake Edwards performed the miracle, transforming Capote's prose treasure into a movie classic starring Audrey Hepburn as feminist/sprit Holly Golightly. In hardcover, Sam Wasson's Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. was praised for its "irresistibly gossipy account" of the production of the film and its skillful interweaving of key events in the creation of this iconic film. One reviewer called it "as well-tailored as the kind of little black dress that Breakfast of Tiffany made famous. Now in paperback and NOOK Book.
