In this volume of essays casting new light on aspects of Waugh's life and writings, the essential Waugh emerges as a diffident artist and a sensitive recorder not only of the Roaring Twenties but also of his century. Evelyn Waugh's undisputed talent and controversial personality are set off in a series of studies that provide new elements towards the understanding of the man and the artist: the annulment of his first marriage, his relations with the BBC are for the first time dealt with in depth and objectivity.
