Holly Golightly, the heroine of Capote's 1958 novel, is one of the iconic characters in American literature. And Audrey Hepburn's portrayal in the movie three years later helped to assure Holly's immortality.

Loretta I saw the movie before I read the book. That's something I don't usually do. What are the odds that the Turner Classics Movie channel would be playing the movie on the week-end that I bought the book? Since the movie was so fresh in my mind, for me the book fell flat. Maybe someday the book will be a reread for me and I'll appreciate it more because I apparently missed something in the book that other readers loved. The movie on the other hand was five stars! :)

Donna Ho Shing Perfectly stated.
