Rules of Civility brings Cole Porter to mind...it's delightful...it's delovely. It's a delicious novel that transports the reader to the playgrounds of upper crust society of 1930s Manhattan. Close your eyes and you are at the dinner party soaking up the spirits and witty repartee, such as:
"--Bucky dear, his wife warned, you're slurring your words.
--Slurring is the cursive of speech, I observed.
--Eckshactly, he said, elbowing me in the ribs.
Coffee in the living room was announced just in time."
Rules of Civility is a fabulously entertaining escape from the week that was.
