Emily Post: Daughter of the Gilded Age, Mistress of American Manners

dcoverI’ve just finished reading Emily Post’s Biography Emily Post: Daughter of the Gilded Age, Mistress of American Manners by Laura Claridge.  I thought this book would be about the perfectly mannered life of America’s etiquette maven but I was shocked to read about the loss that Emily Post had to endure in her life starting with her own scandalous divorce in 1905.  I am a guilded age junkie but this book would appeal to anyone that finds the struggles and triumphs of other peoples lives interesting.
