The original guide to good manners explains why “nothing is less important than which fork you use.”

Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor.
 
A popular phenomenon when it was first published in 1922, Emily Post’s Etiquette quickly established her as the undisputed authority on considerate behavior. Her books, syndicated column, and radio program soon made the phrase “according to Emily Post” part of the American lexicon. Though updated editions have appeared over the years, the original text is both a fascinating window into American high society at the dawn of the Roaring Twenties and a timeless testament to the value of social grace.
 
Covering a broad range of topics, Etiquette includes chapters on “Tea and Other Afternoon Parties,” “Balls and Dances,” “Etiquette in Business and Politics,” and “Travelling at Home and Abroad.” This edition also includes an introduction by editor Richard Duffy as well as photographic illustrations throughout.

About the author

Emily Post (1872–1960) was an author most famous for writing about etiquette. No stranger to living a lavish lifestyle, Post began writing newspaper articles on architecture and interior design. Her first etiquette book, Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home (1922), became a bestseller and has since been modernized. In 1946, Post founded the Emily Post Institute, a school that offers resources and education on proper etiquette. Her other work includes the novels Flight of a Moth and Purple and Fine Linen.

A Blackened Chicken Soup for the Artistic Soul
Passion, humiliation, and depravity are the cornerstones of the artistic spirit. How else to rationalize one's deliberate choice to face a life of unsigned rejection letters, calls from worried parents and collection agencies, and cups and cups of ramen noodles? Being a noble artiste is a rough gig. It's one part denial, one part masochism. And it gets all the respect of being a fry cook, without the convenient minimum wage. Only a fool would agree to such soul crushing -- until now.
The Starving Artist's Survival Guide boldly reassures both the dreamer and the doer that you are not alone. Regardless of whether you are a painter, a poet, a musician, a writer, an actor, or simply paralyzed by an English lit or fine arts degree, help has arrived. Topics include the pros and cons of various artistic day jobs ("People love clowns, except for the 80 percent who want to beat them up and the 20 percent who do"), coping with form-letter rejections through the healing power of haikus ("You, blinking red light, / A call back from my agent? / No, just goddamn Mom"), a survey of artists' dwellings (from the romanticized loft to Mama's rent-free attic), and most important, "Holding On: Ten Good Reasons to Keep Your Head out of the Oven."
Both celebrating and satirizing the pretentious poor, The Starving Artist's Survival Guide recognizes that the best way to cope with self-inflicted poverty is with unbarred humor, not macramé and coupon clipping.
