Praise

“Mr. Mayle is a writer who never fails to entertain. If he were told to go forth and write about doorknobs, he would return with a witty, perceptive essay.”The New York Times Book Review
 
“One of the finest modern writers on matters that deal with taste.”—Craig Claiborne
 
“Much, much fun—and best read with a magnum of Dom Pérignon and a four-pound tin of Beluga caviar.”Kirkus Reviews

“Witty and stylish . . . These hilarious essays are vintage Mayle.”—James Villas, author of The French Country Kitchen

“This delightful celebration of the little (and not-so-little) extravagances that make life worth living scintillates with wit, brio and trenchant observations”Publishers Weekly
 
“Intriguing.”Chicago Sun-Times
