Our library summer challenge is to read a book from each continent and supply a 100 word review to the library. This has given me a bit of a framework to read in with a newborn baby (trying to make myself relax in his afternoon naps). So firstly Breakfast at Tiffany’s for North America. So in under 100 words:
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a novella bundled with three short stories. They all share a common theme of friendship in adversity, set in different parts of the world.
The title novella is a story about a woman who wants to be a free socialite and her friend in the apartment upstairs. We are given a tour of all that glitters in wartime New York City, in Holiday Golightly’s party apartment. But the world does judge her for “loose morals” and she seeks refuge in a friendship with the writer who lived upstairs.
