Breakfast at Tiffany's - Truman Capote
This volume also contains three of Capote's short stories, House of Flowers, A Diamond Guitar and A Christmas Memory which I didn't like nearly as much as the novella Breakfast at Tiffany's. My four star rating is only for the latter with the short stories averaging three stars for me.

Be warned though, for those of you looking for the movie version's romantic comedy and happy ending, the book is quite different. Still very good, just different, although I think I still prefer the movie. Audrey Hepburn may not quite be the Holly Golightly that Capote originally envisioned, but she is still Audrey Hepburn and you just can't beat that :-).
