A personal portrait of the great writer. Frances Donaldson uncovers events that clearly impacted on Evelyn Waugh's literary endeavours. A must for all avid readers of Waugh's work

Toby Campbell

Frances Donaldson describes Evelyn Waugh as she knew him, as a country neighbour soon after the war. She describes him as a family man, friend, host and neighbour. We also see him living through the alarming experience which he so brilliantly transposed into The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold, and writing letters and characteristically crisp and succinct postcards. The man who emerges from these pages will amaze and delight those who admired his work.
