Breakfast at Tiffany's

the BOOk

Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a tiny little novel that speaks volumes about Manhattan’s social scene in 1944. Capote captures the antics of the delightful – if complicated – society girl, Holiday Golightly.  When the book opens, she’s long gone, and its years later. However, the narrator – only named Fred – brings her back to life as he remembers one adventure after another he shared with her while they were neighbors in a brownstone in the East Seventies in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan.

the AUTHOR

Truman Capote is well, Truman Capote. His literary voice is like a cozy sweater - it draws you in and escorts you around the little novel. Breakfast at Tiffany's is the first book he wrote - and it set him on a path to not only to thrive as a writer but to conquer the Manhattan social scene.

the TRIP

Breakfast at Tiffany’s zips you around New York City from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Central Park Zoo to the quiet and sophisticated Upper East side – where Holiday Golightly lived in the flat below Fred. The adventures in the book also drop you into a couple of iconic hotels, the Plaza – which has special meaning for Truman Capote – and the Pierre.  You’ll dine at 21 Club and a longtime favorite, P.J. Clark’s. And you’ll follow the footsteps of Holly along Fifth Avenue from Bergdorf Goodman to New York Public Library and of course to Tiffany’s, where you just might see why – to her – it was so much more than a jewelry store.
