Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman

Sam Wasson
# UP7702 Paperback, 231 pages; 2011 (2010)

This cozy and sophisticated work of cultural history offers engaging insight into the creation of an iconic modern heroine, juxtaposed with the women's rights movement of the 1960s. Flawless Audrey Hepburn embodied the then controversial Holly Golightly character with strength and panache. The curious path of Truman Capote's most memorable character—from early inspirations to the completion of the film version of Breakfast at Tiffany's—rivals the intrigue and melodrama in Capote's original novel! Miss Hepburn's transformation from demure wife to self-willed superstar is especially liberating. You'll be transfixed by descriptions of the Hollywood power plays and a bygone era of impeccable style!
