Almost ninety years after its original publication in 1933, the instant-best-selling No Nice Girl Swears is an illuminating and often hilarious guide to jazz-age America, complete with wisdom and witticisms that give new insight into the morals and manners we still hold sacred--or suspect--today.

Once heralded as the go-to guide for soon-to-be debutantes, No Nice Girl Swears shocked--and delighted--the high-society crowd it addressed. Rich with practical tips and sometimes controversial savvy, worldly-wise socialite and brazen wit Alice-Leone Moats's no-nonsense, tongue-in-cheek guide to the social mores of the upper-crust is equal parts time-capsule (how to dress for dinner on your transatlantic voyage) and timeless missive (how to ditch a date who's had a few too many). With a prescient eye and pithy clarity, Moats weeds through the dos and don'ts of weddings, weekend trips, and the workplace.

Nice girls have grown into strong women, but we sometimes need help navigating relationships, special occasions, and expectations. With this easily digestible volume of tips, tools, and tough love, today's readers can track shifts in etiquette through the times and discover the quirky and unexpected origins of hard and fast social rules. Moats's wisdom, though steeped in the charm of her time, endures: treat others--and yourself--with respect, send thank-you notes (right away ), and don't throw a party without champagne. It's just good manners.
