211 Things a Bright Girl Can Do is the essential life-skills handbook for bright girls of every age, featuring all the subjects they don’t teach you at school or Guides.
Girls, if you reached adulthood without learning how to do a handbrake turn, estimating the size of a gentleman’s tackle, or how to do your own Brazilian, this is the book for you. Divided into handy sections, this fascinating volume contains easy-to-follow tutorials and priceless tips, including:
• How to Be Completely Gorgeous – big knickers or small?, how to pluck your eyebrows, choosing the right size bra, and the Imelda Marcos guide to shoes;
• The Compleat Homemaker – how to make Turkish delight, how to get a man to do the housework, and how to make tea for a builder;
• Jolly Hockeysticks! – how to groom a horse, decorating a Christmas tree, how to read the tealeaves, and how to force a cucumber;
• How to be Bad – complete whipcraft, how to do a striptease and everything else your mistresses didn't teach you at school, but you wished they had.
Plus much, much more.
This volume won’t improve your morals or make you smell nice, but it will entertain and inform. So if you’ve always wanted to know how to lose six pounds in six hours, how to travel in a sidecar and how to turn down a rotten marriage proposal, this is the book you’ve been waiting for.

Bunty Cutler was not born in India where her father wasn't a member of the Diplomatic Service. As a girl, she suffered no horrific abuse at the hands of cruel nuns and neither was she educated at Roedean, where she didn't become Head Girl. She held no influential positions at the BBC before not being appointed Literary Editor of an important newspaper. She is not married with two children and doesn't live in a former vicarage or old post office in Sussex, where she never enjoys walking her dogs and playing the piano. Bunty does not have homes in Highgate, Cape Cod, Manhattan and Nice where she hasn't written two acclaimed post-Modernist novels. Her much-anticipated autobiography is not shortly to be published. In 2006 she wasn't made a Dame of the British Empire.
