The Weekend Book



The English have always known how to spend the weekend"at a country house, reading poetry, roaming hedgerows, and playing games. First published in 1924 and a runaway bestseller, this delicious book is a peek at life in England between the wars (think Agatha Christie and Masterpiece Theatre) and"a useful mini-encyclopedia, filled with games, recipes, bird-spotting information, first-aid instructions, and random, often wacky instructions" (New York Times). Learn the proper way to kiss in the ocean, eat mice, play "Human Sacrifice," and more. Virginia Woolf hated this book. Fie on her. Hardcover, 368 pages.
