From Our Editors

Editor Jennifer Rahel Conover has discovered hundreds of toasts that are superbly witty, wise, and unfamiliar. To this nonpareil collection she's added a historical introduction with fascinating sidelights. For example, did you know that the Romans appointed toastmasters to prevent guests from drinking too much; or that during the Middle Ages, when poisoning was common, toasting provided a polite way of proving to visitors that the wine was safe to drink? Sample toasts: "The health of a salmon to you: A long life, a full heart, and a wet mouth." And Dorothy Parker's immortal, "Three be the things I shall never attain,/Envy, content, and sufficient champagne!"
