Críticas:

"A vicious, witty novel." --"New York Times " "Waugh's technique is relentless and razor-edged...By any standard it is super satire." --"Chicago Daily News " "The most mature and the best written novel that Mr. Waugh has yet produced." --"New Statesman & Nation " "A story both tragic and hilariously funny, that seems to move along without aid from its author...Unquestionably the best book Mr. Waugh has written." --"Saturday Review " "A vicious, witty novel." --"New York Times" "Waugh's technique is relentless and razor-edged...By any standard it is super satire." --"Chicago Daily News " "The most mature and the best written novel that Mr. Waugh has yet produced." --"New Statesman & Nation" "A story both tragic and hilariously funny, that seems to move along without aid from its author...Unquestionably the best book Mr. Waugh has written." --"Saturday Review"

Reseña del editor:

Taking its title from T.S. Eliot's modernist poem The Waste Land, Evelyn Waugh's A Handful of Dust is a chronicle of Britain's decadence and social disintegration between the First and Second World Wars. This Penguin Modern Classics edition is edited with an introduction and notes by Robert Murray Davis.

After seven years of marriage, the beautiful Lady Brenda Last is bored with life at Hetton Abbey, the Gothic mansion that is the pride and joy of her husband, Tony. She drifts into an affair with the shallow socialite John Beaver and forsakes Tony for the Belgravia set. Brilliantly combining tragedy, comedy and savage irony, A Handful of Dust captures the irresponsible mood of the 'crazy and sterile generation' between the wars. This breakdown of the Last marriage is a painful, comic re-working of Waugh's own divorce, and a symbol of the disintegration of society.

If you enjouyed A Handful of Dust, you might like Waugh's Vile Bodies, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.
