Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote

Breakfast at Tiffany's Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A perennial favorite, I recently listened to the Audible edition narrated by Michael C. Hall, and was delighted to find that he brings as much heart and soul to Holly Golightly & Co as I find when reading it in print.

If you’ve only ever seen the film (which is a fantastic movie, IMHO), or you are entirely unacquainted with Holly, do yourself a favor a pick up this book. It’s a slim volume and won’t take much time at all to read, but I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Less by Andrew Sean Greer

Less Less by Andrew Sean Greer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story is exquisite. Something of a coming of age story, but for a 50 year old gay writer finding his place in his new middle age life. I listened to this during a recent road trip, and loved everything about both the story and the narration. An immediate favorite with a shine I know won’t dull with future readings.
