  • Type: Mezzobula

Breakfast at Tiffany's is a mezzobula, to short to be a novel and too long to be a short story, by American author Truman Capote set in the Upper East Side district of New York City. - AsNotedIn

I AM ALWAYS DRAWN BACK to places where I have lived, the houses and their neighborhoods. For instance, there is a brownstone in the East Seventies where, during the early years of the war, I had my first New York apartment. It was one room crowded with attic furniture, a sofa and fat chairs upholstered in that itchy, particular red velvet that one associates with hot days on a train.Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany's
