Is it too obvious to include Tiffany’s in a list of great literary locations? The thing about Capote’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is that it has created something greater than Tiffany’s ever could. Yes the place is grand and intimidating, but if Holly in all her charming and affected disorganisation can find peace and solace here can’t we all? On a personal note I don’t want to see the additional value in a place that is so obviously trying to be above us all but I can’t help but want to be akin to Holly. Outside it is a grand, imposing, stone monolith, inside it is sparkly and that particular shade of blue.
