Auberon Waugh's first novel, The Foxglove Saga, is an imaginative and savage satire. Its hero, Martin Foxglove, is a golden boy. In the eyes of his devout and beautiful mother, Lady Foxglove, he can do no wrong. Despite her unceasing, protective care, Martin chooses a set of wholly unsuitable friends and abandons his Christian faith. He is hell bent on making a bid for freedom, and he holds all the cards, playing them one by one.

About the Author:

A journalist, satirist and novelist, Auberon Waugh was born in Dulverton, Somerset, in 1939, the eldest son of Evelyn Waugh. He was educated at Downside and Christ Church, Oxford, where he made a number of lifelong friends and the first of his enemies. Vendettas were to be a feature of his journalism. Waugh was a columnist for The Spectator for more than twenty years and wrote a diary for Private Eye for fifteen. He was a regular contributor to The Daily Telegraph (most famously his 'Way of the World' column which ran for ten years) and the Sunday Telegraph for much of his working life. He became editor of The Literary Review in 1986. In addition to his witty, 'vituperative' columns, Waugh wrote five novels. Auberon Waugh died in 2001.
