9780753827376: Letters Of Evelyn Waugh
Review:

on the whole, you can imagine what fun it would have been to receive a letter from him (Nicholas Lezard GUARDIAN)

The acerbic wit that made Waugh's novels so entertaining makes for some perfectly hilarious and wildly entertaining letters. ( CATHOLIC HERALD)

From the Publisher:

Evelyn Waugh was the last of the great letter-writers, and his witty, elegant correspondence to a wide circle of friends contains more than a touch of malice.

In the 1920s Waugh wrote to a schoolfriend about his undergraduate escapades at Oxford and the Harold Acton and Henry Green of his unhappy jobs, his literary plans and the break-up of his first marriage. In the 1930s his boisterous letters recount his successes, social life and travels in South America. During the war, writing to his second wife, Laura Herbert, he revealed the strength of his love for her more vividly than has appeared elsewhere. He was inspired by Ann Fleming, Lady Diana Cooper and Nancy Mitford.

Politics are rarely mentioned and he discusses writing only with someone he recognises as an equal, like Graham Greene. His deeply felt religious beliefs are expressed to John Betjeman. But Waugh's main concern is to amuse - and in this he is triumphantly successful.
