PRAISE FOR

Praise for the bestselling The Fabulous Girl’s Guide to Decorum:

“[This] smart, authoritative guide to modern manners gives life to the girl of our dreams: sexy, sophisticated and well-dressed, yet never less than perfectly considerate. She’s a gem, and so is this book.” -- Mark Kingwell, author of The World We Want

“In a world filled with rudeness, it is refreshing to read a book that dares a young woman to be ‘grand’ -- in the same way that Jackie Onassis, Holly Golightly and Coco Chanel were models of taste and diplomacy. . . . Absolutely everything is covered in this book, from what you wear to a job interview, to how to leave your lover, to what kind of utensils should be stored in your kitchen.” -- The Globe and Mail
