The Gentlewoman: Modern Manners
Edited by Kathryn Holliday and Penny Martin
120 x 195 mm, 198 pages, paperback
From the creators of The Gentlewoman comes Modern Manners – a collection of conversational writings on how to 'live fabulously well'.
Taken from essays previously published in the magazine, notable contributors include Ann Friedman, Eva Wiseman, Otegha Uwagba, Caroline Roux, Susan Irvine, Joan Juliet Buck and more. Topics explored are not limited to 'Arriving alone', 'Hosting', 'Godparenting', and a short chapter titled 'What drugs can you not live without?' (Note: A whisky sour counts)
‘Whereas etiquette is meant to put others on their guard, manners are meant to put them at ease’.
