The king of farce strikes a royally hard slap to the face with this gloriously funny study of the life of Paul Pennyfeather, an Oxford expulsion who finds himself a job as a teacher, only to discover that his fellow educators are no better than a rag-tag bunch of oddballs, rascals, and even criminals! As an attractive and wealthy parent of one of the pupils is thrown into the mix, along with the chaos of the school sports day, no one is safe, least of all Paul Pennyfeather.

    " Uh, I guess this was a social novel? I didn't get it, though it was "amusing." Racism abounds in it. "

    " Suprisingly funny...and a stirring ending that, someday, I will reference in a homily. "

    " I think I got a bit stymied for a while near the end of the school sections but I blew through the last maybe fifty pages today and with some glancing back at the prologue developed an opinion; I liked it! there's humor broad and subtle and one of the reviews on the back described it as a "nonsense novel", which I think is fair. that is to say, the novel is of the opinion that pretty much every character and institution therein is full of nonsense. Mobute (the pseudonymous writer, not the dictator) recommended this to me and I thank him and apologize for this garbage mushmouth review also. im gay. "

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.
