5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the bootless and unhorsed, 2 Nov. 2009
By 
This review is from: The Unexpurgated Code: A Complete Manual of Survival and Manners (Paperback)
First published in the mid-seventies, this is both of its time and timeless. A sardonic view of the English class system by a Dublin-educated American, it takes the tone of the self-help manuals beloved of the first half of the 20th century and has vicious fun with the earnest instruction dispensed therein. Advising the reader on how to deal with such situations as public flatulence, "Inducing Folk to Eat Cheap When You Have Invited Them to Dine" and "Being Excluded From Who's Who", it's the natural predecessor to, for instance, Guy Browning's erstwhile "How To.." column, collected in the book "Never Hit A Jellyfish With A Spade". If you liked that, you might find this to your taste.
