Actor Michael C. Hall Narrates ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’

51rZT5DkgdL._SL300_Dexter actor Michael C. Hall narrated an audiobook edition of Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote.

Audible.com released this work on February 11, 2014. This project marks the first time Hall served as a reader for an audiobook performance.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Hall had this statement: “Reacquainting myself with this landmark work of fiction was a pleasure and a privilege. Anyone only familiar with the film version of Breakfast at Tiffany’s will be astonished by the subtlety and beauty of Capote’s prose, and by the nuanced complexity of the story. For me, this is among the best scripts an actor could imagine.”
