Perhaps better yet for the canny "Capote consumer," this 2013 Random House companion volume includes Capote's etheral first published novel, OTHER VOICES OTHER ROOMS, written in a style of literary symbolism that captures so well the changes a young orphan goes through when he leaves home, connects with distant relatives in a distant location, and realizes his sexuality. Few contemporary readers realize that Capote journeyed well into Southern Gothick with this late-Forties novel. It isn't perfect, but it is highly absorbing, and psychologically revelatory in a way Capote didn't really intend when he wrote it.
One novella, one novel; one well-known, the other that deserves to be. This isn't a huge volume, but getting them together between hard covers make this a worthwhile buy.
What really made this book stand out was Capote’s sensitivity and attention to details. Holly’s New York is quite visceral and it’s almost as though I could experience the high end, New York lifestyle in real life. Holly appears an illusion and twists into any shape the people in her life expect her to be. Holly is a walking contradiction, and her mystery only increases with the numbers on the pages. She seems to know nothing about the world, yet she always seems to be one step ahead, knowing just what to say and how to act. Capote writes Holly as a person who listens only to her heart, breaks the rules and doesn't really care about the future. She is the kind of woman that can’t be tamed and who is in a continual search for the place, which she calls "home". I wished Capote had evolved Holly Golightly more as a character. When she runs away to Buenos Aires, the narrator and myself were left with many questions. Has she forgotten about her friend and that's the reason why she never writes to him? Where did her affairs bring her? Did she find that perfect place where she felt like at Tiffany's? Overall, I was pleased with the book and its wholly captivating flight into fancy composed of comedy, romance, poignancy, and Manhattan's East Side areas captured in the loveliest of colors.
