Having read them all, these people have since been telling their friends how much Waugh offers the discriminating reader. A special zeal, an irresistible eloquence, distinguishes these Waugh enthusiasts. In BRIDESHEAD REVISITED, Evelyn Waugh's first new novel in three years, the qualities prized by so many show at their finest. Here is wit, feeling, audacity, intellect, reckless improvisation and a deceptive blandness; here is a novel that will entertain, stir the emotions, recharge the brain cells, and induce laughter. For the reader unacquainted with' the novels of Evelyn Waugh, there may be doubt whether all these charms can exist in one book. He will find them in BRIDESHEAD REVISITED, together with an extraordinary love story and an illuminating presentation of the modern conflict between religion and divorce. Briefly, here is the story of the rich, the beautiful, and the damned Marchmains, as told by Captain Charles Ryder, who revisited their home, Brideshead, in the war years. It is the story of exquisite, appealing Sebastian who drank to escape bondage to his ascetic mother; of Julia who defied church and family by her marriage; and of Ryder himself, drawn irresistibly within the vortex of this extraordinary family. It is a story of the strain that faith may put on different temperaments, of how thin its thread may be for some, and of how strong it is in the lives of others. With such a theme, this brilliant author has reached the maturity which his previous novels promised. Parts of this novel appeared in abbreviated form in Town and Country.
