Another fabulous tale crafted by Evelyn Waugh. This novel is engaging, comedic, and tragic--all at the same time. While the prose flows and the vocabulary is not difficult, many adult themes occur within the novel. Waugh examines class, sexuality, and--again--the decline of "true Englishness" in England.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, and in the end, you'll be glad you picked this book up. I highly recommend it.
