From Our Editors

 

This novel is another literary classic from Evelyn Waugh. When middle class Charles Ryder meets Sebastian Flyte, he is drawn into the world of the Marchmain family, doomed aristocrats pent up in their home at Brideshead, where they are being slowly destroyed by age and alcohol. Infused with the torpor of post-Second Word War England, Brideshead Revisited is sharply satirical but also haunting and evocative. Perhaps Waugh's greatest work of fiction, it will remain with you long after you've turned the last page
