Description

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.


The Complete Stories is a dazzling
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.

      • bioText:

        Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966) was born October 28, 1903 in London, England. After short periods as an art student and schoolmaster, he devoted himself to travel and to the writing of novels. His novels are unusually highly wrought and precisely written. Those written before 1939 may be described as satirical. During World War II his writing took a more serious and ambitious turn. Waugh also wrote travel books.
