The Art of Peeling an Orange, set in sizzling, contemporary West Hollywood, is the art of glorifying and eroticizing the dual pains of love and lust. It is a gender-bending, risque take on the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. The story's powerful structure, colorful characters, and magical themes echo the ancient story of the lovers in the Underworld. What do you do when your lover has eloped with another woman on the eve of your wedding? The other woman is a famous beauty named Anna Garibaldi, and you are heartbroken. To add insult to injury, the one who has abandoned you dies unexpectedly. Where do you go from there for solace, for justice? If you are Carly Rosen, a portrait artist with huge imagination, you use your art to charm your way into the life and inner circle of the alluring Anna Garibaldi, whose seductive and secretive underworld is nothing you could have expected! You are doomed and you are blessed, and you don't know which you prefer. Excerpt from Chapter 46: She stepped into that huge hollowness, imperial and fearless in her bare feet, a beautiful, wild creature in its natural habitat. This basement was as familiar to her as the insides of her mind. She reached out, aware of everything in its place, and pulled on the edge of one ghostly sheet. The sheet slid off, sending clouds of dust into the already dusty air. "Welcome to the Land of the Dead," she announced. Dead, dead, dead...answered the echo."

This book provides rules for the etiquette to be observed in the street, at table, in the ball room, evening party, and morning call; with full directions for polite or respondence, dress, conversation, manly exercises, and accomplishments. Man was not intended to live like a bear or a hermit, apart from others of his own nature, and, philosophy and reason will each agree with me, that man was born for sociability and finds his true delight in society. Society is a word capable of many meanings, and used here in each and all of them. Society, par excellence; the world at large; the little clique to which he is bound by early ties; the companionship of friends or relatives; even society tete a tete with one dear sympathizing soul, are pleasant states for a man to be in. All in all this is a great book on etiquette. A great place to learn the rules of etiquette.

Man is a social animal and he finds his true delight in society. The Youngman who makes his first entrance into society should know how to choose his friends and conduct himself towards them. Experience is, of course, the best guide, but at first starting this must come second hand-from an older friend or from books. A judicious friend is the best guide, but how is the young man to know whom to choose? Naturally he opts for the second option, the books. And this book serves this purpose. It offers invaluable instructions regarding how to behave in the society-from dress code to dating etiquettes, from greeting capsules to kissing etiquettes, from ballroom etiquettes to the etiquettes of travelling, and much more. Read the book and explore the delightful world of gentlemanly etiquettes.
