Book Review Brunch: Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote

With her tousled blond hair and upturned nose, dark glasses and chic black dresses, Holly Golightly is top notch in style and a sensation wherever she goes. Her brownstone apartment vibrates with martini-soaked parties as she plays hostess to millionaires and gangsters alike. Yet Holly never loses sight of her ultimate goal - to find a real life place like Tiffany's that makes her feel at home. Immortalized in a film starring Audrey Hepburn, Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's is full of sharp wit and in its exuberant cast of characters vividly captures the restless, slightly madcap era of early 1940s New York.

      Sure James. If you've seen the movie, you will probably be able to follow and contribute to the conversation anyway.

    Hey Roy!
    Sorry could not make last few events. Between home renovations and end of school year approaching, overwhelmed. Need some relaxing time and this seems perfect. Hope all is well.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
