THE PARTY A Guide to Adventurous Entertaining

by | Read by Anna Fields

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

Novelist and journalist Sally Quinn is bemused when she's called a "noted Washington hostess." But she does allow that she gives great parties. In this book she tells the rest of us, most amusingly, how to do the same. Her personal recommendations include serving plenty of booze (her word) and NEVER serving coffee, and she considers a party successful if the guests all end up lying around on her living room floor. Still, her pronouncements about mixing guests, choosing food, arranging tables, and just plain making people happy are valuable. Her dry wit and sophistication are perfectly embodied in Anna Fields's expert reading. A sprinkling of stories about famous Washington parties and party-goers adds zest.
