Omtale Evelyn Waugh: The Complete Stories
For the first time, all of Evelyn Waugh's stories - thirty-nine marvelous works of short fiction spanning his entire career - are brought together in a single volume.. "The stories range from delightfully barbed portraits of the British upper classes to one in which Waugh suggests an alternative ending to his novel A Handful of Dust; from a "missing chapter" in the life of Charles Ryder, the nostalgic hero of Brideshead Revisited, to two long, linked stories, remnants of an abandoned novel that Waugh himself considered "my best writing"; from a plot-packed morality role that Waugh composed at a very tender age to an epistolary lark in the voice of "a young lady of leisure"; from a hilarious fantasy about newlyweds to a darkly comic tale of scandal in a remote (and imaginary) African outpost.
