Evelyn Waugh Bibliography Maker

Sulking over his children's impertinence, Waugh wrote, "Thank God Christmas is over. I prefer Ash Wednesday." He also referred to an early Oxford homosexual partner as "the friend of my heart." Both statements are quintessential Waugh: writer, traveler, sometimes alcoholic, fevered Catholic convert, satirist, military man, snob, husband, father, and eccentric romantic. Hastings, acclaimed for her Nancy Mitford: A Biography (Dutton, 1986), covers all the above and more, including Waugh's turbulent relationships with his father and brother, his two wives, Cyril Connolly, Diana Cooper, Randolph Churchill, and Mitford. Hastings brilliantly evokes Waugh's reverence for British aristocracy and English Catholicism as Waugh did in his great novel Brideshead Revisited. Many of the Brideshead characters are partial portraits of the people in Waugh's personal life, including himself: a self-portrait in the persona of the character Charles Ryder. In the autobiographical A Little Learning (1964), Waugh wrote, "At Oxford I was reborn in full youth." Hastings has achieved yet another rebirth for Waugh, this time a full memorial. Highly recommended for serious readers.?Robert L. Kelly, Fort Wayne Community Schs., Ind.
