Summer Crossing

July 17, 2009

Summer Crossing‘ – Capote’s first (lost & thank God found) novel – a summer reading of it.  ‘You are a mystery, my dear…’ and Grady was … slightly as Holly, but not as GOlightly. Nothing compares to Holly, but … not bad for a start, in my view.

    Few years after “Summer Crossing”, in 1958 Capote wrote “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, filmed in 1961, directed by Blake Edwards and starring Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly.
    Interesting fact is that Capote was a childhood friend of Harper Lee, who wrote “To Kill A Mockingbird” (1960), filmed in 1962, starring Gregory Peck and Robert Duvall. The character “Dill” (Charles Baker Harris) is said to have been modeled on Capote.
