Evelyn Waugh was the most complicated of men It is the first great virtue of Selina Hastings' 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
