Here is the perfect little book for anyone - teenage or otherwise - who has ever wanted to master the art of good table manners. Written by Walter Hoving, former chairman of Tiffany's of New York, it is a step-by-step introduction to all the basics, from the moment the meal begins ("It is customary for the young man to help the young lad on his right to be seated") to the time it ends ("Remember that a dinner party is not a funeral, nor has your hostess invited you because she thinks you are in dire need of food"). In addition to all the essentials about silverware, service, and sociability, it includes many of the fine points too-how to best hold a fish fork, how to eat an artichoke properly, and, best of all, how to be a gracious dining companion.
