Who better to narrate etiquette maven Miss Manners' audiobook than her daughter, Jacobina Martin? The queries discussed range from earnest to almost nonsensical, particularly when technology and contemporary behavior are the subjects. Martin's impressive talents perfectly mirror the questions asked and her mother's often hilariously sarcastic responses to "gentle readers." Listeners will benefit--and be entertained--by learning how to deal with virtuous rudeness, misleading invitations, extortionist etiquette, and the new rules on socializing in restaurants. (Who pays? Along with understanding proper conduct for the 2000s, dated etiquette is identified and deftly explained in terms of its historical context. Martin is at her best when rendering advice on the prickly art of gift giving, thank you cards, and the always fraught family holidays. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
