The Week-End Book: A Sociable Anthology

Last year, Duckworth resurrected the legendary Week-End Book , much to the delight of modern readers. This year we have invited some of the wittiest and most entertaining contemporary writers at work in English to contribute to the Week-End Book tradition, and combined new work with essential material from the original. Clarissa Dickson Wright, chef and countryside campaigner tells us how to make the most of the ever versatile pig. Legendary adventurer and writer Rory Stewart, tells us how to prepare for a long walk. Oscar-winning screenwriter and novelist, Julian Fellowes, explains how to be the perfect guest. All this, plus the rules for human polo, recipes for an ambrosial Sunday brunch, and a complete illustrated guide to that most daunting or sartorial peaks - the bow tie.
