  • Dinner Diaries follows in the spirit of Assouline’s popular Proust Questionnaire, Fashion Questionnaire, and Wine Questionnaire, using the format of Proust’s handy interview helper, to ask everything about dinner parties, from preferred seating arrangements to the best conversation topics. Featuring handwritten answers from experienced hosts such as Ivanka Trump and chef Alex Hitz, Dinner Diaries is illustrated with ephemera from these hosts—seating charts, menus, guest lists, place cards—and contains blank questionnaires and seating charts in the back to share with friends. The perfect gift!
