    DescriptionEvelyn Waugh kept a diary almost continuously from the age of seven until a year before his death in 1966. Extracts from the diaries caused sensation when they were published by the OBSERVER. They are a unique literary document of 300,000 words which provide the background to the novels which made Waugh famous, and gives a continuously sharp and baleful view of the social history of our times. THE DIARIES throw new light not only on Waugh's work, but on the character of a puzzling, cantankerous and formidable man.

    Review quote
    These diary entries are often far more candid than his letters and he is adept at demolishing a character in one line. CATHOLIC HERALD
