The Art of Being Middle Class : How to Handle Life's Awkward Micro-moments
Middle-class Brits are embarrassed, awkward, and charmingly insecure in their tastes. The Art of Being Middle-Class, based on stories from cult blog The Middle Class Handbook, is here to help. What are the essential topics to cover when talking about other couples? What do you do about the awkward bag on the seat moment? How do you subtly boast about your summer holiday destination? What does your cooker hood say about you? With tips on taste and etiquette, a conspiratorial cheer here and there, and a kick up the bum when necessary, this book sets out to help our marvellous British MCs be the best they can be. Praise for The Middle Class Handbook: "Indispensable...whether you're middle class or pretending not to be." GQ magazine. "Hilarious...we laughed our organic, brushed cotton socks off." Grazia. "The Middle Class Handbook skewers the middle classes, and then dissects them with ruthless comical accuracy." Esquire.
