Quel book: Fifth Avenue, 5 A. M.

The subtitle of this book says it all: "Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and the dawn of the modern woman."

Author Sam Wasson charts arc of people and events that came together to create the movie: Truman Capote's late-night/early-morning trips to Tiffany's with one of his muses, to his novella based partly on his absent mother, the Givenchy-only clause in Audrey's contract, the making of director Blake Edwards' hilarious party scene, and both the scandal and the impact of Holly on Audrey Hepburn and on viewers.

I highly recommend reading the book first and then watching the movie again, darlings.
