Evelyn Waugh

Stannard, Martin

Two volumes: 'The Early Years 1903-1939' (published 1986) and 'No Abiding City 1939-1966' (1992) form the most detailed account ever published of Evelyn Waugh and his work.
Together, they cover his childhood, years at Oxford, marriage, expeditions to Africa and other places.
Explored in equal measure are his reputation as defender of conservatism, a brilliant clown, and a serious artist with a melancholy heart, who disengaged from the world after 1945.
