Happy Anniversary Holly Golightly

Today Vintage Books releases a 50th anniversary edition of Breakfast at Tiffany's, arguably Truman Capote's best-loved book. The 1958 novel, which took place in the '40s, followed the eccentric call girl Holly Golightly through the eyes of the young, unnamed narrator Holly refers to as "Fred."

Many more of you will likely remember the 1961 film version of the book, starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. It's a lovely and classic film, which also can boast one of cinema's best party scenes of all time. But the film doesn't reflect the novel entirely, so I encourage fans of the film to go back and read this classic story.
