Ten of us met to discuss Fifth Ave, 5 a.m. by Sam Wasson in August. Ellen graciously filled in to lead the group this month. The book is subtitled, “Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the Dawn of the Modern Woman.” Some of the discussion was about whether or not modern women were sufficiently represented by Hepburn’s character. Ellen mentioned that “some of the biographical material on Capote was also interesting as many attendees had read his other works and tried to “connect the dots” in regards to his personal life as a celebrity and the somewhat sordid lifestyle that he wrote about when he created these characters. Hollywood portrayed the prostitution in the novella by ignoring it and substituting a glamorous, imaginary lifestyle from which decision Capote distanced himself. Even the Asian character was false!” I’m sorry that I missed the discussion.
