From the Publisher:
First published in 1935, this guide to good behavior is actually a subversively witty satire of etiquette and dating handbooks, now in a gift format edition
With advice as useful today as it was 70 years ago, this gently satirical handbook to being the right sort of girl effortlessly guides readers through the troublesome twists and turns of the social whirl. Monica Redlich dispenses advice for every possible encounterfrom how to combine kindness with absolute honesty when reassuring friends (They always say a big nose is a sign of character) and what to say when caught in an awkward situation (I am just trying to get some dust out of poor Freddie's eye) to the perfect reply on receiving congratulations upon your engagement (Thank you, Angela darling. I only wish we could manage to find someone for you). Nice girls once reigned supreme, and with this essential companion they could again. No modern girl should be without it.
