Start the Summer with THE WEEK-END BOOK: A Sociable Anthology
Summer's here and while everyone is busy picking beach reads and choosing summer reading lists, The Overlook Press has been shipping our brand new summer titles to bookstores all over the country. To celebrate the first weekend of the summer, we are pleased to introduce The Weekend Book: A Sociable Anthology, from the Editors of The Nonesuch Press. The follow-up to last year's popular The Week-End Book, this classic guide to indoor and outdoor week-ending offers valuable advice and instruction on everything from hosting a party and mixing cocktails to planting a garden and picking produce. Oscar-winning screenwriter and novelist Julian Fellowes explains how to be the perfect guest. Legendary adventurer and writer Rory Stewart tells us how to prepare for a long walk. All this, plus the rules for human polo, recipes for a perfect Sunday brunch, and a complete illustrated guide to that most daunting sartorial task – how to tie a bow tie. Have a great week-end!
