To celebrate today's 50th anniversary of the publication of Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Vintage is releasing a new, paperback special edition of the book. If you've only seen the movie, you might be surprised to learn why Capote originally wanted Marilyn Monroe to play Holly Golightly: In the book, she was more prostitute-y. [NYO]
