5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent insight into the World of Britain in the 1920's, 19 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Vile Bodies (Paperback)
Vile Bodies is an the personification of all that Waugh perceived to be inherent in the 1920's; a decade when double standards and the pure oppulence of the Jazz age was open to all who desired it. In many ways, the comparison between Vile Bodies and 'This Side of Paradise' by Scott Fitzgerald is welcomed. Both manage to give a true picture through unfettered eyes of the roaring '20s. Waugh has the ability to make you laugh whilst making a point, and is more subtle than his American contemporary. An excellent book, worth the money it costs and the time it takes to read. Extremely useful for students and all people who wish to understand history but do not desire reading dusty volumes of archaic literature.
