About this product
- DescriptionIn this unique collection of Waugh's early short stories, some of which became the inspirations for his vels, Waugh displays his unique talent for comedy and narration. Mr Loveday's Little Outing is a blackly comic tale of a mental asylum and its favourite resident, while Cruise sees a hilarious series of letters from a naive young woman as she travels with her family. These witty and immaculately crafted stories display the finest writing of a master of satire and comic twists.
- Author BiographyEvelyn Waugh was born in Hampstead in 1903, second son of Arthur Waugh, publisher and literary critic, and brother of Alec Waugh, the popular novelist. He was educated at Lancing and Hertford College, Oxford, where he read Modern History.

Waugh travelled extensively and also wrote several travel books, as well as a biography of Edmund Campion and Ronald Knox.
