Big City Book Club: 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'

Starting at 1 p.m., the Big City Book Club will be discussing Truman Capote’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” a magnificent, economical account of failed reinvention in a city where, needless to say, legions come and never ascend as high as their aspirations would have them go.

    Mr. Capote's protagonist became iconic thanks to Audrey Hepburn. Her Holly Gollightly with her "little black dress" by Givenchy and her designer sunglasses seems to have walked off the screen and taken over the world. Everyone's seen the movie, but Capote's novel is worth reading also. Really, the script is fairly close to the book, except that Paul's role is bigger in the movie and the book is darker. Oh and the book doesn't have that dreadful Mickey Rooney part, thank goodness.

Farenheit 451. This book made a big impression on me in high school. I would like to actually own my own copy.
