The Decadent Handbook: For the Modern Libertine

by Edited by Rowan Pelling
£15.99   paperback  Dedalus Ltd (2006)

The Decadent Handbook: For the Modern Libertine by Edited by Rowan Pelling The ultimate lifestyle guide for those who want to transform the spirit of the age, or failing that, ignore it altogether.
This bible for the modern decadent offers select guidance on extreme cuisine, gutter beverages, tawdry travel, seedy films, depraved books, dissolute sex and corrupt individuals. Top tips on louche living and stylish exits.
Featuring contributions from the 19th century's leading anti-heroes, Oscar Wilde, Octave Mirbeau and J.K. Huysmans - plus our definitive guide to the most decadent moments in history.
Wayward and debauched advice from the free spirits of our age, including Hari Kunzru, Salena Godden, Michael Bywater, Louise Welsh, Tom Holland, Helen Walsh, Lisa Hilton, Belle de Jour, Joe Boyd, Nicholas Royle and Robert Irwin.
The contributors (those still living by the time of publication) have chosen to be remunerated with La Fee Absinthe, the true spirit of decadence.
