Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060881305, Hardcover)Evelyn Waugh And The Secrets Of Brideshead Evelyn Waugh was already famous when Brideshead Revisited was published in 1945. Written at the height of the war, it was the story of a household, a family and a journey of religious faith - an elegy for a vanishing world and a testimony to a family he had fallen in love with a decade earlier. In this engrossing biography, Paula Byrne sets out to capture Waugh through the friendships and loves that mattered most to him. She uncovers a man who, far from the snobbish misanthropist of popular caricature, was as loving and complex as the family that inspired him.
