NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NEW YORK TIMES BEST BOOK OF 2010 "So smart and entertaining it should come with its own popcorn" - People "A bonbon of a book. As well tailored as the little black dress the movie made famous." - Janet Maslin, New York Times "Sam Wasson is a fabulous social historian." - The New Yorker "Reads like carefully crafted fiction.[Wasson] carries the reader from pre-production to on-set feuds and conflicts, while also noting Hepburn's impact on fashion (Givenchy's little black dress), Hollywood glamour, sexual politics, and the new morality. Capote would have been entranced." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Sam Wasson's exquisite portrait of Audrey Hepburn peels backs her sweet facade to reveal a much more complicated and interesting woman. He also captures a fascinating turning point in American history- when women started to loosen their pearls, and their inhibitions. I devoured this book." - Karen Abbott, author of Sin in the Second City Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. by Sam Wasson is the first ever complete account of the making of Breakfast at Tiffany's. With a cast of characters including Truman Capote, Edith Head, director Blake Edwards, and, of course, Hepburn herself, Wasson immerses us in the America of the late fifties, before Woodstock and birth control, when a not-so-virginal girl by the name of Holly Golightly raised eyebrows across the nation, changing fashion, film, and sex, for good. With delicious prose and considerable wit, Wasson delivers us from the penthouses of the Upper East Side to the pools of Beverly Hills presenting Breakfast at Tiffany's as we have never seen it before-through the eyes of those who made it.
