Colecção Mil Folhas, #22

Em 1958, numa América ainda não imune ao espectro da guerra fria e já marcada por uma certa ânsia de transgressão, Boneca de Luxo parecia combustanciar verdadeiramenteo espírito da época e, ao mesmo tempo, propor uma filosofia de vida capaz de converter os modelos severos de moral puritana numa prática pura de alegria, da "irreflexão", da vitalidade.
Holly Golightly, a extraordinára protagonista, é uma rapariga alegremente avessa às convenções sociais e às conveniências, que se orienta nas sua opções por uma profunda moralidade, feita de solidariedade, de gestos generosos, de absoluta falta de malícia, e que, precisamente por isso, infringe as obtusas normas de moral burguesa. Com a pequena corte de indivíduos "esquisitos" de que se rodeia, constitui um núcleo que involuntariamente prefigura uma socialidade diferente, mais aberta e, afinal de contas, mais feliz. Mas o mundo que a circunda não aceita facilmente a sua ingénua atitude contra a corrente, e Holly será obrigada a pagar por isso: envolvida sem culpa numa questão de droga, acabará por se libertar, mas será abandonada pelo homem com quem estava para casar. E, todavia, o conformismo não triunfa, já que a rapariga parte, pronta a recomeçar a sua vida noutro lado, com uma carga vital quiçá acrescida.
Divertido, fascinante, perfeitamente equilibrado do ponto de vista estilístico, este romance é, sem dúvida, a obra mais feliz e agradável da actividade literária de Truman Capote - apesar de estarmos na presença de um apaixonado e firme empenho de denúncia civil.

Read information about the author

Ebook Boneca de Luxo read Online! Truman Capote was an American writer whose non-fiction, stories, novels and plays are recognised literary classics, including the novella Breakfast at Tiffany's (1958) and In Cold Blood (1965), which he labeled a "non-fiction novel." At least 20 films and TV dramas have been produced from Capote novels, stories and screenplays.

He was born as Truman Streckfus Persons to a salesman Archulus Persons and young Lillie Mae. His parents divorced when he was four and he went to live with his mother's relatives in Monroeville, Alabama. He was a lonely child who learned to read and write by himself before entering school. In 1933, he moved to New York City to live with his mother and her new husband, Joseph Capote, a Cuban-born businessman. Mr. Capote adopted Truman, legally changing his last name to Capote and enrolling him in private school. After graduating from high school in 1942, Truman Capote began his regular job as a copy boy at The New Yorker. During this time, he also began his career as a writer, publishing many short stories which introduced him into a circle of literary critics. His first novel, Other Voices, Other Rooms, published in 1948, stayed on The New York Times bestseller list for nine weeks and became controversial because of the photograph of Capote used to promote the novel, posing seductively and gazing into the camera.

In the 1950s and 1960s, Capote remained prolific producing both fiction and non-fiction. His masterpiece, In Cold Blood, a story about the murder of the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas, was published in 1966 in book form by Random House, became a worldwide success and brought Capote much praise from the literary community. After this success he published rarely and suffered from alcohol addiction. He died in 1984 at age 59.
