Social Q's: How to Survive the Quirks, Quandaries, and Quagmires of Todayby Philip Galanes
Synopses & Reviews
A modern comedy of manners that shows what passes for good behavior today, from the New York Times “Social Q’s” columnist Philip Galanes.
Office attire and e-mail misfire. Twitter snafus and dating miscues. Philip Galanes hears an awful lot of “What Should I Dos?” It started in 2008, when Galanes began the “Social Q’s” advice column for the Sunday Styles section of The New York Times. Now, in a series of briskly paced essays, featuring new material, never used in his column, Galanes confronts today’s most awkward and pressing questions.
Branded with an inimitable voice, Social Q’s tackles unanswered questions and brand-new subjects with sharp wit and practical wisdom. Social Q’s is an essential reference that will guide you swiftly through the treacherous terrain of modern etiquette—and keep you laughing for days.
A cornerstone of The New York Times’s Styles section, Philip Galanes confronts today’s most awkward and pressing questions with laugh-out-loud dish and practical wisdom. Not only about the new ways to thank a friend for throwing you a bridal shower, or how to deal with a noisy neighbor, but also how to navigate a new age crowded with Tweets, twits, OMGs, and WTFs, Social Q’s is a knockout book that will guide you swiftly through the treacherous terrain of modern etiquette—and keep you laughing for days.
