Vile Bodies (penguin Modern Classics) by Evelyn Waugh for sale online | eBay
Skickas inom vardagar specialorder. Evelyn Waugh's acidly funny and formally daring satire, Vile Bodies reveals the darkness and vulnerability that lurks beneath the glittering surface of the high life. In the years following the First World War a new generation emerges, wistful and vulnerable beneath the glitter.
The Bright Young Things of twenties' Mayfair, with their paradoxical mix of innocence and sophistication, exercise their inventive minds and vile bodies in every kind of capricious escapade - whether promiscuity, dancing, cocktail parties or sports cars. In a quest for treasure, a favourite party occupation, a vivid assortment of characters, among them the struggling writer Adam Fenwick-Symes and the glamorous, aristocratic Nina Blount, hunt fast and furiously for ever greater sensations and the fulfilment of unconscious desires.

By the time the tale had ended too soon I might add it had offered numerous laugh out loud passages. This was one of the funniest books that I've read in quite awhile April 6, - Published on Amazon. Robert Hardy's reading of "Vile Bodies" leaves much to be desired. He reads too fast, does not always enunciate properly, and changes the volume loudness of his voice to such a degree that the quiet parts are difficult to catch.
He is a good actor, on stage and screen, but he needs more training as a book reader. November 29, - Published on Amazon. While not his finest novel of this period, it contains some memorably witty scenes while capturing the dawn of modern tabloid culture. Go to Amazon.
