    " Between WWI and WWII a wealthy British Catholic family who seem distant from one another and yet tied together through their sporadic dips into their faith. The narrator loves first Sebastian then his sister Julia but can never be truly part of them because of his inability to take "the leap." "

    " Starts of as a hilarious description of the young, rudderless and rich. But as he grows up, it becomes not so much fun (even if it is supposed to show growth). "

    " It wasn't what I expected, and that was probably a good thing. Charles Ryder's experience of the Marchmain family and their intra-world-war malaise was haunting and gripping at the same time. I somehow had misplaced Evelyn Waugh in the canon as a Nineteenth Century author and didn't expect the very modern sensibility he brings to the story. I should have remembered this little fact from reading The Loved One years ago. I am having some trouble "getting" the last page of the book and knowing what kind of tone Waugh wants to set for the ending. I have the movie version out of the library and I will be interested to see how they handle it. "

About the Author
Author Evelyn Waugh

Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966) was born October 28, 1903 in London, England. After short periods as an art student and schoolmaster, he devoted himself to travel and to the writing of novels. His novels are unusually highly wrought and precisely written. Those written before 1939 may be described as satirical. During World War II his writing took a more serious and ambitious turn. Waugh also wrote travel books.
