Blue top-stain a bit faded. Dust jacket about Fine, without any of the ubiquitous spine toning, but a touch of wear at the spine ends and rubbing on the rear panel. An American classic in literature, it was also the basis for the Oscar-winning film starring Audrey Hepburn in the iconic role of Holly Golightly. Capote's admitted favorite literary creation. Long before Hepburn graced the screen as Holly Golightly, Capote was observing the New York socialites around him and gathering inspiration for the character who would help define his career. "Like every fiction, Holly Golightly was a composite of multiple nonfictions.
