The Complete Short Stories, Paperback


In this unique collection of short stories composed between 1910-62, Evelyn Waugh's early juvenilia are brought together with later pieces, some of which became the inspirations for his novels. "Mr Loveday's Little Outing" is a blackly comic tale of a mental asylum and its favourite resident; "Cruise" sees a hilarious series of letters from a naive young woman as she travels with her family; "A House of Gentlefolks" observes a group of elderly eccentric aristocrats and their young heir; and, in "The Sympathetic Passenger" a radio-loathing retiree picks up exactly the wrong hitchhiker.

These witty and immaculately crafted stories display the finest writing of a master of satire and comic twists.
