The main dish was liquor, all hands having sailed out of the Second World War on a tide of alcohol. The Wisners’ eldest son, Frank’s namesake, who in time rose to the heights of American diplomacy, saw the Sunday night suppers as “extraordinarily important events. They were not just triﬂing social affairs. ” After dinner, in the British tradition, the ladies retired, the gentlemen remained, and the bold ideas and boozy banter went late into the night.
