A great little book for the summer. A very fast read that gives you a peek back in time. The girls got to participate in so many historical situations in one summer it really must have been dreamlike. There are quite a few situations in the book--for example in the elevator and dancing with the sailor, where you can picture yourself because things like that happen to all of us one time or another. The ending is sweet but doesn't go for great gobs of emotion.

This book was a light, fun memior. I did enjoy it, although honestly I was a bit disappointed. I found a bunch of mistakes (most gramatical, spelling, extra word, etc.) in the book, which I think is pretty distracting when reading. Also, the author would switch from past tense to present tense throughout the book, and although I think it was done purposely, I found it a little bit confusing. Overall, I think the story was good and simple, though maybe a little corny. It was almost too wholesome for my taste. It did contain an interesting description of the author's experience of VJ Day in Times Square- I think that was my favorite part of the book. The writing could have flowed better and been more polished, but I'd say this book is worth reading.

A memorable story with lots of detail that paints a romantic picture of summer in NYC during the end of WWII. Interesting to read how the staff at Tiffany handled their first women pages.

I loved this book and didn't want it to end! The author was a very likeable character and I enjoyed some of her humorous experiences, events of 1945, and references to living in Iowa. The author did a great job of giving the feel of the saddness and worry of wartime as well as the joys of growing up and gaining independence. I highly recommend this book.

This is a charming little book. The author made me feel like I was seeing through her eyes and processing the impressions through her mind, with its Iowa sensibilities. It also gives a good picture of a little of what it was like to be alive during the war years.

This little hardback book is a treasure to read and reread. It asks "what was the best summer of your life?" The author and her fellow U of Iowa classmate take the train across the country to NYC with the promise of plentiful jobs, Midshipmen and adventures galore. What they find are lots of other coeds in need of employment... but their blond good looks and wholesome Midwestern innocence land them jobs as Tiffany's first female employees. (Wartime, you know.) Follow the author and her friends through VJ day in this sweet story.

    Résumé Summer at Tiffany

    “Hart has a genuine gift for conveying the texture of midcentury Manhattan…. [She makes] the dilemmas of her own young life both compelling and contemporary.”

    —*USA Today*

     

    “[A] glorious once upon a time fairytale come true….I loved every moment!”
      —Adriana Trigiani, author of Very Valentine

     

    A memoir acclaimed as “reminiscent of The Best of Everything and Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (*BookPage*), Summer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart is the true story of two best friends experiencing the time of their lives in New York City during the summer of 1945. The Cleveland Plain Dealer raves, “Hart writes about that stylish summer with verve, recollecting with a touching purity a magical summer in Manhattan, seen through the eyes of two 21-year-olds, just as the end of World War II approached.”
