Description


A humorous advice book, offering tips on bedroom manners.
 
Have you ever needed tips on how to sleep next to a snoring spouse? How to convalesce in style? Have you pondered the etiquette of staying in a haunted house? Better Bed Manners, originally published in the 1930s, has the answers you seek.
 
This amusing guide was originally written for married couples, poking fun at both wives and husbands. Better Bed Manners offers a witty glimpse of middle-class life in a bygone era, but it also dispenses some universal advice that still rings true today. “Choose bedside books for their soporific qualities,” or “one whisky-and-soda on retiring . . .  makes the average man forget the dullest dinner and sends him to bed in a glow of goodwill.” With sections on hot-water bottles, robes de nuit, breakfast in bed, the best kind of pillow, sneaking home late, and night-time reading, this is the perfect self-improvement gift for your favorite bedfellow.
