If you're a fan of Henry James, you might enjoy the admittedly lengthy biography about him written by Leon Edel. It's pretty readable and fresh (considering it's several volumes long).

I just read Breakfast at Tiffany's not too long ago as well. Did you like it?

Yup, I quite enjoyed it; I didn't think I would like it so much, actually. It's rather adorable, and I really liked the style... very amusing.

What about you - did you like it?

I loved it. I loved how light Holly always kept everything even though her problems were real and in your face. I loved the way she was written.
