Second novel by Golightly (1919-1998), ex-Greenwich Village bookstore owner, pulp fiction author, and amateur folk singer, who moved from Tennessee to live in the East Side of Manhattan. She claimed Truman Capote modeled his Breakfast at Tiffany's protagonist Holly Golightly on her, famously suing him, Random House, and Esquire Magazine in 1959. Capote denied the connection, claiming he never met Golightly, and she wound up losing the suit. A compelling work of fiction, and one of the earliest Beat Generation novels written by a woman, pre-dating Diane Di Prima's Memoirs of a Beatnik by a decade. OCLC notes 8 holdings (SUNY Buffalo, LC, U.Delaware, Emory, U.Louisville, UNC Chapel Hill, Ransom Center, U.Virginia).
