Description

Evelyn Waugh's beloved masterpiece, with an introduction by Paula Byrne

The most nostalgic and reflective of Evelyn Waugh's novels, Brideshead Revisited looks back to the golden age before the Second World War. It tells the story of Charles Ryder's infatuation with the Marchmains and the rapidly disappearing world of privilege they inhabit. Enchanted first by Sebastian Flyte at Oxford, then by his doomed Catholic family, in particular his remote sister, Julia, Charles comes finally to recognise his spiritual and social distance from them.

'Lush and evocative ... Expresses at once the profundity of change and the indomitable endurance of the human spirit'
The Times
