In Dinner Diaries, author Daniel Cappello borrows the interview technique of Marcel Proust to create a guide to the modern dinner party. Handwritten answers from experienced hosts consider everything from preferred seating arrangements to the best conversation topics, while illustrations reproduce contributors’ seating charts, menus, guest lists, and place cards as well as archival pieces from glamorous dinner parties of yesteryear. The book includes blank questionnaires to share with your favorite hosts.
