The Little Book of Vicarage Wisdom
Intended as a spoof on The Little Book of Calm and its successors, here are Catherine Fox's hard-won tips for living well, if not admirably, wrung from her years on the vicarage front lines. When you are stressed, seek out the company of calm, wise people. There is always a chance you will wind them up too. Her observations may not bring you to a state of grace—if someone is annoying you, why not make a soothing anagram out of their name? (Archdeacon = acned roach). However, her grasp of the practical will keep you out of trouble.
