NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“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

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.

Remarkable Journey

What a wonderful journey as if i were standing in the shadows voyeuristically watching the film being made. Highly recommend. Film history is peppered with lore and legacy. It's refreshing to read such a well documented journey.
