Preppy Handbook Makes a Comeback

Great news for the preppy set: A long-treasured guidebook to all things khaki and tweed is making a comeback. Thirty years ago, no coffee table in a certain kind of dorm or home was complete without a copy of The Official Preppy Handbook. Now one of the book's original authors and a fan of the book are publishing a new version in September called True Prep. The first version sold 1.3 million copies. The new one will be updated to include proper etiquette for recent technology and an essay on gay life in the prep world.
