LIVING FOR TWO: A Guide to Homemaking

Email this review


This seems to me the most complete book on general problems of the young bride-housekeeper I have seen, far and away better than Wiley's So You're Going To Be Married (Lippincott). Not much on the personal side, but a great deal on the functional and practical side. The etiquette and management of engagement and wedding, trousseaux for varying budget levels and various climates, what to buy in the way of linen, blankets, furniture, china, glassware, silver, with relative merits and drawbacks. Your home -- apartment or house; leases; insurance; decoration. How to live in it:- servants, routine, cleaning, marketing, menus, cookery, care of possessions.
