Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. Audrey Hepburn and Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Wasson, Sam
Aurum UK 2010 
 Hardcover This is both a review & a contents-tempter > In "Fifth Avenue, 5 A. M.: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Audrey Hepburn, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman", Sam Wasson offers the reader more than just an insider's look into the making of this movie. Wasson, a social historian, delves into so many worlds in this book it is sure to have something for everyone. The movie industry insider tidbits and chronology leading to the making of Breakfast at Tiffany’s is reason enough to read this book, but, Wasson gives his readers so much more than this. "Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M." is like a slice of cultural pie that encompasses the way women were portrayed in the 1950’s and the foreshadowing of the new "modern woman" of the 1960’s. The unlikely center of this shift into the modern woman is none other than sweet, timid Audrey Hepburn and her portrayal of Truman Capote’s Holly Golightly. There is so much "scoop" in this book it’s impossible to even attempt to touch it here. 231 crisp pp & less than 500g. Photo section centre. review (do you really need one?) > Great biography. Really interesting because it wasn't completely about Audrey. Had to watch the movie as soon as I was done- it was like watching a behind the scenes documentary.  Excellent/Excellent
