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

"It may shock you, but it will make you laugh."--New York Times
"A wickedly witty and iridescent novel."--TIME
"A hectic piece of savage satire....I laughed until I was driven out of the room."--V.S. Pritchett, The Spectator
"Evelyn Waugh is a satirist, no doubt, but not a skeptic, for he believes, and proves, that amusement can be depriced from the most unpromising material, from people, that is, whose one occupation in life is the quest for amusement, people who give and attend parties."--Saturday Review
"A savage study in public and private morals....It is uproarious. It is also ferocious."--John K. Hutchens, New York Times
"Wonderfully funny."--Jessica Mitford, LIFE
