''Breakfast at Tiffany's'' is a 1958 novella by Truman Capote.

The novella is about a [[AuthorAvatar nameless gay writer's]] friendship with Holly Golightly, a bicurious, borderline HookerWithAHeartOfGold. The story was a touching meditation on the varying nature of love, and how people of disparate backgrounds can form unconventional family groups.

!!This novella provides examples of:

* ADogNamedDog: Holly's cat is named...Cat.
* BlitheSpirit: Holly.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: It's stated right off the bat that it had been years since the main character had ever seen or heard from Holly, and that she may well be somewhere in Africa at this point, and apparently the cat she threw out found a new home.
* MeaningfulName: What better surname than "Golightly" could there be for a free-spirited ditz with an unserious approach to life? Noted with her hanging a sign on her door whenever she was out, "Golightly traveling".
* MostWritersAreWriters: Holly's unnamed friend is a writer.
* PrecisionFStrike: Holly, when abandoning her cat. Doubly precise considering the meticulousness of Truman Capote's prose.
