Inhalt

Masked parties, Savage parties, Victorian parties, Greek parties, Wild West parties, Russian parties, Circus parties, parties where one had to dress as somebody else, almost naked parties in St John’s Wood ... all that succession and repetition of massed humanity … Those vile bodies Counting Stephen Fry, David Bowie and V. S. Pritchett among its ardent admirers, this inventive satire depicts the ‘Bright Young Things’ of 1920s Mayfair, a group to which the author himself belonged. These bohemian socialites lived in a whirlwind of drug-fuelled parties, extravagant practical jokes and shallow romances, outraging their elders and delighting the tabloid press. In his introduction to this edition, the acclaimed author David Lodge explores his ‘favourite’ Waugh novel and the author's mastery of dark comedy. Also featured are a series of alluring illustrations by Kate Baylay which complement her vivid binding design
