True Prep: Its a Whole New Old World

True Prep: Its a Whole New Old World by Lisa Birnbach, Chip Kidd 0307593983 9780307593986
Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary


From the author of The Official Preppy Handbook comes a new take on the old world that Lisa Birnbach turned into an international best-selling phenomenon thirty years ago. True Prep looks at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies adapts to the new order of the Internet, cell phones, rehab, political correctness, reality TV and . . . polar fleece. A small sample: * Wardrobe: Recent prep brands we are forced to recognize. How to tell Casual Friday from, say, Saturday. * Money: We never talk about it. * Food: Does the Food Network mean were going to have to cook? Bake? Now youre going too far. * Scandals: Poor Mrs. Astor. When Mummys plastic surgery goes terribly wrong. Rehab and the slammer: the new prep schools. * Were outta here: When to name something after yourself, and when not. The right obituary. What to do with your dogs if you predecease them. * NO TEXTING AT THE TABLE, PLEASE. True Prep promises to be a whole new old sensation.
