Synopsis

No one understands etiquette better than Town & Country! Following the success of the magazine's Town & Country Social Graces comes an all-new collection of 27 essays on the challenges of navigating a fast-changing society when the old rules are unenforceable and new ones have yet to be proposed. The writers cover everything from food and money to vice, family, and society, and include: Henry Alford ("Rich You, Poor Me"), Todd Appletree ("Puff Daddy"), Eric Banks ("That's Awkward!"), Kevin Conley ("A Farewell to Alms"), Patti Davis ("Saying No to Daddy"), Joseph Epstein ("The Sweet Smell of Failure"), Dwight Garner ("Table Trouble"), Nina Griscom ("A Dying Art"), Eric Kongisberg ("The Name Game"), Christine Lennon ("What Makes the Rich Beg?"), Andrew McCarthy ("Baby Boom"), Bob Morris ("The Hunger Games"), Lawrence Osborne ("The Tippling Point"), Holly Peterson ("Host Nation"), Katie Roiphe ("Odd One In"), Sarah Payne Stuart ("On the Rocks"), Alexandra Styron ("The Sorest Loser"), Tim Teeman ("Is Privacy Dead?"), Michael Thomas ("Alimony Ever After"), Gully Wells ("Elegant Expletives"), and Ali Wentworth ("Confessions of a Bag Lady").

Town & Country is the oldest general-interest magazine in the United States, having chronicled American life since 1846. It has been an acute observer of the social landscape, reporting on the pastimes and passions of leading figures and families in a way that reveals the truth about us all.
