About the Author

Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966), whom Time called one of the century's great masters of English prose, wrote several widely acclaimed novels as well as volumes of biography, memoir, travel writing, and journalism. Three of his novels, A Handful of Dust, Scoop, and Brideshead Revisited, were selected by the Modern Library as among the 100 best novels of the twentieth century.

Reviews

"A many-faceted book....beuatifully told by one of the most exhilarating stylists of our time."--Newsweek
"Heartbreakingly beautiful....The 20th century's finest English novel."--Los Angeles Times
"A genuine literary masterpiece....Brideshead Revisited is actually a wildly entertaining, swooningly funny-sad story about an iumpressionable young man, Charles Ryder, who goes to Oxford in the 1930s and falls in love with a family: the wealthy, eccentric, aristocratic Flytes, owners of a grand old country house called Brideshead....Told in flashbacks from the dark days of World War II, the novel is aglimmer with the guttering candle glow of an elegant age that was already passing away."--Lev Grossman, TIME
"Evelyn Waugh's finest achievement."--John K. Hutchens, New York Times
