Book Summary

Evelyn Waugh is now recognized as the finest novelist of his generation. At the end of his life, though, he appeared as an enigma: malicious, yet capable of extraordinary kindness, an apparently selfish Christian, an articulate aesthete with strong, often negative, tastes, an anarchist defending conservatism. He wanted nothing to do with the modern world, and few penetrated his facade.

In this important biography, Martin Stannard gives the most detailed account ever published of Waugh and his work. Years of research have unearthed a great deal of new material. The author rejects the stereotyped image of Waugh as the brilliant clown, and in its place we see a more complex and sympathetic character and, above all, the serious artist.
