    Simple, Stylish and Plenty of Fun

    By Bill Marsano. there are two kinds of people in this world: Those who throw (or fling or hurl) parties and those who don't. The former are beloved of the earth and destined for long lives of success, achievement and public acclaim. The latert are a friendless lot doomed to become social lepers unless, that is, they buy this book and follow it with religious zeal. Then they'll be OK. The problem is that parties are almost always lots of fun until you begin to think about giving your own, and then they seem daunting, even terrifying. Well, OK; they're not something you can just toss off, but it you let La Lenkert be your guide, you will succeed. Just keep in the front of your mind her infectious motto: Support Wild Life--Throw a Party. Parties take modest amounts of care, planning, attention and oprganization. Lenkert takes the approach of organizing YOU by giving you the straight dope in an organized, encouraging and (best of all) brief manner. She knows about music and mannders, drinks and desserts, recipes (there are plenty here, all simple and sure-fire) and supplies. In the end, this is really a primer for the festivity-challenged. They'll use it for maybe two or three soirees and then spread their wings. Or maybe not. Either way, they'll have freedom or dependence for about the price of a movie. Their friends will be amazed, and they'll be thrilled with themselves. --Bill Marsano is a professional writer and editor.
