A Handful of Dust - Evelyn Waugh

1934 - Chapman and Hall Ltd., London - First Edition
All over England people were waking up, queasy and despondent.

‘Few writers have walked the line between farce and tragedy as nimbly as Evelyn Waugh, who employed the conventions of the comic novel to chip away at the already crumbling English class system. His 1934 novel,
A Handful of Dust, is a sublime example of his bleak satirical style: a mordantly funny exposé of aristocratic decadence and ennui in England between the wars.’ - Simon Leake.

A fine first edition, and scarce thus.
