Breakfast with Tiffany: An Uncle's Memoir

by Edwin John Wintle
£6.99   paperback  Simon and Schuster (2006)

Breakfast with Tiffany: An Uncle When you are a fortysomething gay New Yorker with a stressful job as a film agent and the odd obsessive-compulsive tendency, you may not see yourself as an ideal parent.
 
However, when Ed's sister asks him to take in her daughter - the beautiful, capricious and occasionally difficult Tiffany - Ed agrees. Soon, his life has turned upside down as he tries to deal with an exasperating but loving teenager while learning to be a parent himself.

"An endearing coming-of-age story set in the Big Apple. It's easy to get caught up in the seamlessly written narrative of Uncle Eddy who, in trying to help save his troubled teen niece, winds up saving himself. Wintle bewitchingly captures both the spirit of the angst-ridden girl and his own fear of inadequacy as a substitute parent. A lovely journey of two people becoming a real, modern family."
