Book It: Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.

books // June 22, 2010

Looking for a good beach read? Here it is. Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M., written by Sam Wasson, shows us how Truman Capote’s original book Breakfast at Tiffany’s was adapted into the film we all know and love. Wasson gives us insight into all sorts of interesting facts – for example, did you know that Capote originally wanted Marilyn Monroe to play Holly Golightly? And “Moon River” almost didn’t make the film at all? (What a different film it would be with Miss Monroe as Holly Golightly and no “Moon River”?) Of course the film turned out exactly like it should be, and if you want to know how then this is the read for you! This book just jumped to the top of my Kindle summer reading list…
