Mr. Loveday's Little Outing and Other sad Stories | [Evelyn Waugh]

Mr. Loveday's Little Outing and Other sad Stories

Lovely old Mr. Loveday, who looks after the feeble-minded patients, is so deserving of a day off, isn’t he? And then there's that lost traveller who's rescued in the Amazon and conscripted to read Dickens, a man who hates radios, Bella Fleace's party and a whole host of hilarious characters that Evelyn Waugh ruthlessly satirises with his elegant, malicious prose. If you've never read Waugh then this collection is an excellent introduction. If you know his novels then his short stories are a revelation.

    "mildly interesting"

    I found many of the stories to be words for the sake of words.
    I read this book in parallel to How we are hungry by Dave Eggers.
    The fore mentioned book won heads down for me.
