Vibrant mixture of insight, humour and subtle tragedy.,

This review is from: Vile Bodies (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
Almost inconsiderate of the readers emotions, Waugh wraps us up in the lives of shallow but elegant people, only to destroy them with understated deadliness. The book is a parody as well as an encomium to an era when 'vile bodies' could exist with style. Read and enjoy, but do not get too attached.
