"Breakfast at Tiffany's is Truman Capote's first major work of fiction in seven years. It marks his return to the field in which he made his reputation as one of the outstanding writers of this generation. Breakfast at Tiffany's not only equals in brilliance such Capote novels as Other Voices, Other Rooms; it is also highly provocative in theme and characterization-so much so that month before its publication it was a major conversation piece in publishing circles."
