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 story both tragic and hilariously funny, that seems to move along without aid from its author...Unquestionably the best book Mr. Waugh has written."--Saturday Review
"The most mature and the best written novel that Mr. Waugh has yet produced."--New Statesman & Nation
"Absolutely delightful."--Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times
"Glacially sardonic....A masterpiece."--TIME
"A brilliant satirical study of the eccentric between-wars society to which Waugh belonged."--LIFE
"Waugh treats society as a wonderland in which he plays the part of a rude, libellous, yet domestic Alice."--V.S. Pritchett
