9781934997154: Vile Bodies: Bright Young Things (A CSA Word Classic)

Evelyn Waugh was known for his cutting critiques of English high—and low—society of the 1920s and '30s. Vile Bodies finds him at the peak of his form. This story of impoverished writer and high-society hanger-on Adam Fenwick-Symes recounts his endless attempts to wed heiress Nina Blount. The unforgettable cast of zanies includes American evangelist Mrs. Ape, the modern Mrs. Runcible, a revolving line of Prime Ministers, and the inimitable Mr. Chatterbox. Waugh's coruscating wit and surprisingly serious ending are well-served by this dramatic audio version.

About the Author:

Evelyn Waugh was born in Hampstead in 1903 and educated at Hertford College, Oxford. In 1928 he published his first novel, Decline and Fall, which was soon followed by Vile Bodies, Black Mischief (1932), A Handful of Dust (1934) and Scoop (1938). During these years he also travelled extensively and converted to Catholicism. In 1939 Waugh was commissioned in the Royal Marines and later transferred to the Royal Horse Guards, experiences which informed his Sword of Honour trilogy (1952-61). His most famous novel, Brideshead Revisited (1945), was written while on leave from the army. Waugh died in 1966.
