Summary
A 'lavishly entertaining' (Publishers Weekly) distillation of Waugh's genius--abundant evidence that one of the twentieth century's most admired and enjoyed English novelists was also a master of the short form.
Evelyn Waugh's short fiction reveals in miniaturized perfection the elements that made him the greatest satirist of the twentieth century. The stories collected here range from delightfully barbed portraits of the British upper classes to an alternative ending to Waugh's novel A Handful of Dust; from a 'missing chapter' in the life of Charles Ryder, the nostalgic hero of Brideshead Revisited, to a plot-packed morality tale that Waugh composed at a very tender age; from an epistolary lark in the voice of 'a young lady of leisure' to a darkly comic tale of scandal in a remote (and imaginary) African outpost.

I am not one for dry stories but once I got into the stories, I could see the characters and their typical behaviors that the author writes about. Since being a fan of Downton Abby, I have enjoyed more British writings that aren's exciting, action packed and moving toward showing the worst side of people. He reflects many ways the British see their lives and communities. The narrator makes a difference and Simon Prebble is one of the best.
