Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An infectiously funny guide to post-deflowerment decorum, with illustrations by a master of the absurd.

For more than half a century Miss Hyacinthe Phypps has been offering guidance on proper behavior. Her simple rules of propriety and common sense have helped a generation of girls over the threshold to womanhood. Recognizing the need that prevails more today than ever before, Miss Phypps has been persuaded to bring back into print this priceless volume of her words of advice, delightfully accompanied by Edward Goreys ink and watercolor illustrations, that have been so valuable on so many occasions. It is the publishers fondest hope that this book will serve the current generation of young ladies as it served their mothers.

About the Author

Edward St. John Gorey (1925-2000), gave to the world over one hundred works, including The Gashlycrumb Tinies, The Doubtful Guest, and The Wuggly Ump; prize-winning set and costume designs for innumerable theater productions from Cape Cod to Broadway; and a remarkable number of illustrations in publications such as the New Yorker and the New York Times. Goreys masterful pen-and-ink illustrations and his ironic, offbeat humor have brought him critical acclaim and an avid following throughout the world.

 
Mel Juffe was an editor, writer, correspondent, and teacher at the New York Journal-American, the New York Post, Radio Free Europe, and New York University.
