This charming pocket handbook is a complete guide to the manners, customs and etiquette of the glamorous 1920s. Each chapter gives detailed instructions for a specific type of social event: what to expect, how to dress, suggested yarns for the raconteur and instructions for deft, witty self-expression. As lively and amusing as it is useful, this is a vintage reproduction of a Gatsby-era pocket guide to courtesy, style and elegance in the age that redefined them.
