Title: The Diaries of Evelyn Waugh. Edited By ...
Publisher: Little Brown, Boston
Publication Date: 1979
Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.
A Near Fine copy in a Very Good unclipped dust jacket with sunning to the spine of the jacket. No tears or chips or marks to the text. This collection covers the period from 1911, when Waugh was seven, to 1966, a few weeks before his death. Despite occasional gaps, the diary presents a continuous record of the thoughts and acts of the tantalizingly complex man whom Graham Greene saluted as 'the greatest novelist of my generation.' Here also is an unparalleled day-to-day portrait of the crumbling, giddy society that Waugh's fiction recreated with all 'the defiant hilarity of a dance on a sinking ship,' as well as glimpse of the real people behind the characters who have become permanent part of modern literature. To those Waugh aficionados seeking an authentic guide to the ways in which the writer drew on his experiences to create his fictional world, to those intrigued by the well-publicized Waugh legend, to those who relish graceful writing laced with malice, and to those looking for a remarkable 'inside' view of England's social and literary landscape from the early twenties on, 'The Diaries of Evelyn Waugh' are simply not to be missed.
