Susanna Johnston (au); John Wells (fr). What lies behind the urge to entertain? Power? Snobbery? Humankindís essential gregariousness? Whatever the motives, there is no doubt that parties have been used by poets, novelists & playwrights throughout the centuries as great set pieces to portray the dynamics of character, plot & society. In this wonderfully entertaining volume, with a foreword by actor & writer John Wells, Susanna Johnston has collected prose & poetry from authors throughout the world, both famous & neglected. The extracts she has chosen illuminate the whole gamut of emotions engendered by a social gathering.
