Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Evelyn Waugh was known for his cutting critiques of English high—and low—society of the 1920s and '30s. Vile Bodies finds him at the peak of his form. This story of impoverished writer and high-society hanger-on Adam Fenwick-Symes recounts his endless attempts to wed heiress Nina Blount. The unforgettable cast of zanies includes American evangelist Mrs. Ape, the modern Mrs. Runcible, a revolving line of Prime Ministers, and the inimitable Mr. Chatterbox. Waugh's coruscating wit and surprisingly serious ending are well-served by this dramatic audio version.

Synopsis:

In the years following the First World War a new generation emerges, wistful and vulnerable beneath the glitter. The Bright Young Things of Twenties May fair, with their paradoxical mix of innocence and sophistication, exercise their inventive minds and vile bodies in every kind of capricious escapade. In a quest for treasure, a favorite party occupation, a vivid assortment of characters hunt fast and furiously for ever greater sensations and the fulfillment of unconscious desires.
