Every time I read a Truman Capote story, I am happily surprised. I too often think of Capote as the character in all interviews and media stories about him and his later life, which is not the right thing to do because he really does write well.
In Breakfast at Tiffany's, the only issue I had was I couldn't see the narrator and Holly Golightly to actually be friends other than living in the same building. What I did enjoy was how Capote described the NYC neighborhoods, and the way he described interactions between his characters. I think that is one thing he does well as an author.


This edition also included 3 of his short stories, of which A Christmas Memory was my favorite. I had a harder time getting interested in House of Flowers.
