Reprint. Originally published: London: Eyre Methuen, 1977.

Whether celebrating Hogarth or savaging Hollywood, mocking modern manners or defending traditional English architecture, inviting readers to 'come inside' the Catholic Church or expressing his contempt for modish Marxism and American-style religion, Evelyn Waugh's journalism is sparkling, sometimes vitriolic and always full of good sense.

In this wonderful selection he explores his Oxford youth, his unexpected conversion, his literary enthusiasms (from P.

G. Wodehouse to Graham Greene) and the perils of basing fictional characters on real people.

Decades after their publication, these pieces still retain their capacity to delight, to surprise and to shock.
