A gorgeous facsimile edition of Agnes M. Miall's classic 1916 volume, this is a charming resource for the modern-day 'girl on her own'. Truly a 'Guide to Everything', the straight-talking Mrs Miall offers timeless advice on a minefield of everyday dilemmas from how to be successful in your career: 'When dealing with employers or fellow-workers who are men, try to forget that you are a woman'; to how to avoid unwelcome advances, 'walk along briskly and purposefully, not staring at anyone; loitering and aimless strolling are to be avoided. If spoken to in spite of precautions, a decided answer or a cold stare will usually end the annoyance'. With instructive gems on every page, this delightful piece of retro is a revealing window onto the life of a single woman during the first world war, and at the same time a hilarious reminder that sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same!

Reviews

"Did you know that if you lack brown polish for a pair of brown shoes, you can use the inside of a banana skin? Well now you do, thanks to The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Everything by Agnes M. Miall, first published in 1916 and reissued by Oneworld. I'm not sure that I am ready to take her advice about pouring petrol over my clothes to get rid of stains, but I'm up for the banana trick." - The Times"Miall's book is an intriguing window on a bygone era."
