    DescriptionSent down from Oxford for indecent behaviour, Paul Pennyfeather embarks on a series of bizarre adventures that start in a minor public school and end in one of HM prisons. In this, his first and funniest novel, Evelyn Waugh immediately caught the ear of the public with his account of an ingenu abroad in the razzmatazz of Twenties high society.

    Author Information
    Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966), is considered chief chronicler of the 'Bright Young Things' (the aristocratic and fashionable circles of the 1920's) and is one of the century's most accomplished and funny novelists. Waugh is also widely regarded as the foremost social satirist of his generation. His other works, including VILE BODIES, SCOOP, THE LOVED ONE, and BRIDESHEAD REVISITED are also published in Modern Classics.
    Review quote
    "* 'Waugh's comic universe has an aspect of vigorous bleak chaos which both outrages and delights' - Malcolm Bradbury"
    Review text
    Again an experiment in bringing to the fore a novel of earlier date, by an author whose recent work has widened his market. Woollcott felt that Waugh was England's most gifted ??novelist the publishers feel that this early novel deserves to be available again. An extravaganza, a satire on old school tie, on smart set house-parties, on a social order which the war is bringing to its end. Line up your Waugh enthusiasts tell them this reissue of his first novel is in the offing. (Kirkus Reviews)
