If you're interested in sampling Kit Coleman's writing, the best compilation is Ted Ferguson's Kit Coleman: Queen of Hearts, published in 1978. Ferguson organizes excerpts from Kit's columns by theme, generally choosing her funniest bits. One major drawback of this book: no footnotes indicating which editions of the Mail or Mail and Empire the pieces were drawn from.
The last chapter offers a series of "words of wisdom" from Kit. Some of her advice seems quaint, some reveals her distrust of others, some only require slight tweaking to remain relevant:
The arrogance of youth would be unbearable if it were not so amusing.
Candor is a virtue for which women pay most dearly.It is no use attempting to converse with cranks. As soon as you discover their crankism, fly.Was there ever a friendship between two women that did not mean a plot against a third?There is no more charming girl in all the world than she who is attentive to old ladies.On the dunghills of life, we sometimes find the sweetest flowers growing.Friendship is far more tragic than love. It lasts longer.
