the Art of conVerSAtion
a guided Tour of a Neglected Pleasure
A wide-ranging, exhortatory look at the pleasures of great conversation, including strategies for how to bring it about, from the
witty pen of an Englishwoman wise in its ways. Blyth eloquently
points out the sorry state of disrepair that conversation has fallen
into—and then, taking examples from history, literature, philosophy, anthropology, and popular culture, she gives us the tools to
rebuild. “Take the wittiest, most spellbinding dinner companion
and put her between book covers; that’s The Art of Conversation by
Catherine Blyth.”—Margaret Shepherd, author of The Art of Civilized Conversation.
