Overview

"The Etiquette Grrls are very funny, very wise, and very in your face. It's easier to learn manners when you're laughing rather than crying." (Latitia Baldrige)

It is indeed a Tacky, Rude World, which we inhabit. The Etiquette Grrls have decided that things are simply getting out of hand, and they have Taken It Upon Themselves to step in with a helpful guide to navigate the Etiquette Quandaries in your day-to-day life. They dish up advice on cohabitation, letter-writing, telephoning, traveling, grooming, drinking, dining, dating, and marriage and, it would be Terribly Rude of you not to pay attention.

Who are they, you ask, to be writing such a book? The Etiquette Grrls are graduates of New England Preparatory Schools and Prestigious Colleges; they are throwers of Great Parties; they can hold their liquor; their expertise on fashion and makeupand-especially Subversive Nail Polish colors-knows no bounds; they wear Doc Martens with their cashmere twin sets; and, most important, they know what they're talking about.

The Etiquette Grrls' advice has been featured in Ladies Home Journal, Chicago Sun-Times, and Business Week Online. Their own website, EtiquetteGrrls.com-cited as one of the best on the Web by excite.com, best-of-the-web.net, projectcool.com, and college newspapers throughout the country-provides monthly features and weekly responses to the Etiquette Quandaries of their loyal readers.

Author Biography: Lesley Carlin & Honore McDonough Ervin are The Etiquette Grrls, creators of the interactive website which allows readers to ask and answer questions on any subject from martinis to cell phones.
