    I'm about 30 pages from the end of this book, it's definitely interesting, I'll give it that. I never saw the movie so I can't compare it. Has anybody else read it? Though one thing I don't understand, and maybe it's just how Holly/Lulamae/whatever, talks, but I heard in the book Holly had had an abortion, but I just remember her saying that she 'lost the heir', didn't really specify how.

    I've only read In Cold Blood by Capote. Come to think of it, I haven't seen the entire movie either.

    I finished the book, and it was good, but it was also one confusing as hell read, because the book says only Breakfast at Tiffany's, it doesn't say 'and 3 other stories', so I figured these short stories in the back, House of Flowers, the Diamond Guitar and A Christmas Memory, were all part of the same book and I thought these were other identities Holly assumed in her passing years, lol.

    I've seen the movie a dozen times but never read the book until recently.
    Big difference in all the characters and now I can see what Capote was not thrilled with the movie version.
