"Full of the secret thoughts we all harbor about entertaining. It's social venting with real solutions- read: advice you'd want to use - and a heavy helping of humor." - Lizzie Post, author of Emily Post's Etiquette, 19th edition

Society is under threat. The culprit? BRUNCH. Not merely a forum for overpriced eggs, BRUNCH is a leisure-time-squandering hellscape, embodying all that is soul-killing and alienating about modern life. 

How to fight back? By throwing a DINNER PARTY - the cornerstone of civilized society! 

BRUNCH IS HELL takes hesitant hosts through every phase of throwing a great DINNER PARTY, from guest list to subpoena. Loaded with wit, celebrity advice, and tongue-in-cheek humor, BRUNCH IS HELL is a spirited guide to restoring civility.
