Mad world : Evelyn Waugh and the secrets of Brideshead by Paula Byrne

Amy Mad WorldEvelyn Waugh, such a fascinating, complicated man living in extraordinary times. Paula Byrne has brought to life his wit, passion, faith, irreverence and loyalty, largely through his long relationship with the Lygon family, who inspired the Marchmains of Brideshead Revisited. This biography is funny, tender, sad and often shocking, full of real life characters that are familiar and many that are recognisable from Waugh’s novels – enjoyably engrossing.
