The Art of Southern CharmPat_Book_Image

I can’t wait for everyone to read The Art of Southern Charm. It’s a blueprint to have a lovely life, Southern style. I go into everything—I wrote lists of what to do, what not to do, what to buy. I list my favorite things, I talk about the home, personal achievements, and I have a list of authorities who chime in on the various things we are talking about.

Cathy Horyn, a dear friend of mine and the former fashion critic of the New York Times is in the book. She talks about the history of the caftan and why it’s important and who wore it. I talk about how to decorate your house or your apartment, and Mario Buatta answers questions. Katie Lee Joel, who was married to Billy Joel, tells you what to cook on a first date, how to land a man by your cooking. Carolyn Roehm talks about flowers and how to decorate. Georgette Mosbacher tells you how to go about finding a husband. Carson Kressley from Queer Eye talks about what to wear on a first date, and how not to screw it up. I list products and techniques, how to manage your home, what you need to know, and what’s on my kindle. I have lists of things that I like, things that I dislike—I have one list the “End of Western Civilization” that includes things like the man-bun.

You can purchase the book on Amazon for $25.99.
