Product description

Review

‘...gripping and thoughtful on every page.’ -- Mail On Sunday

‘A brilliant, three-dimensional portrait’ -- Country Life

‘Evelyn Waugh was one of the funniest writers in the language. Selina Hastings’s book is alive with his humour’ -- Sunday Express

‘Her style is supremely elegant and her eye for detail brings dazzle and wit to every page…This is a monumental book’ -- Independent on Sunday

‘Perceptive, witty and beautifully written’ -- Daily Mail

Book Description

'Evelyn Waugh was the most complicated of men-It is the first great virtue of Selina Hastings's splendid biography that she never forgets it. Consequently she has written a sympathetic and highly intelligent book which also - rarity of rarities these days - reads rapidly. It is sympathetic also because, like Waugh himself, the author adores gossip.'Daily Telegraph
