Off the C(H)uff with Sam Wasson

I've just stumbled across an interview with Sam Wasson on Huffington Post, author of the new book Fifth Avenue, 5 AM. I know I've featured this book quite a few times already, and even an interview or two with the author, but I think this one in particular deserves some attention because it gives far more light into the book and why it was written than any other article I've read so far. It's a good read, fairly short but entertaining and packed with information, and it also features the Breakfast at Tiffany's trailer that yours truly posted on YouTube a few years ago. :)

I shall be getting a copy soon to review for you, but in the meantime, has anyone read it or at least flipped through it in the bookstore? What are your thoughts?

I'm reading it now and so far enjoying it very much! I love any insight into Audrey and her movies.

I purchased it last week after you posted about it and read it in about two days. It was very good - a quick read but full of interesting facts. I have to agree with the author of this article, however, that I'm not sure I view it as the dawn of the modern woman, but he definitely makes a compelling case.

I recently finished reading Fifth Avenue, 5 AM and enjoyed it very much. It's chock full of interesting facts and anecdotes. I love how so many people's lives were intertwined and helped influence the making of Breakfast at Tiffany's. I was a little sad when I reached the last page, because it was so enjoyable. I might just have to read it again, really soon!
