Publisher's Summary

A book of brilliant entertainments: 39 stories spanning the entire career of a great modern writer and an undisputed comic genius, "a satirist whose skill at sticking pens in people rates him a roomy cell in the murderers' row (Swift, Poe, Wilde, Shaw) of English letters" (Time).

Chips from the Master's Bench

What made the experience of listening to The Complete Stories of Evelyn Waugh the most enjoyable?

The narrator is top notch. Couldn't be better.

If you’ve listened to books by Evelyn Waugh before, how does this one compare?

Good, but not great. Read this one last.

Which scene was your favorite?

"Scott-King's Modern Europe" was just brilliant. Vintage Evelyn Waugh.

If you could take any character from The Complete Stories of Evelyn Waugh out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Not a one of them. They're all perfectly awful.

Evelyn Waugh sampler, just short stories-

Very confusing, frustrating to listen to. I kept thinking I'd missed something until I read the other reviews. "Complete Stories" a very misleading title. Waugh is my favorite author. Favorite book: Decline and Fall.
