Evelyn Waugh 
Tactical Exercise & Other Late Stories 

Support

Composed between 1939-62, the late stories of Evelyn Waugh are in turn blackly comic and bitingly satirical. In ‘The Sympathetic Passenger’ a radio-loathing retiree picks up exactly the wrong hitchhiker, while ‘Charles Ryder’s Schooldays’ provides a hilarious and fragmentary insight into life before Brideshead. These witty and immaculately crafted stories display the finest writing of a master of satire and comic twists.

About the author

Evelyn Waugh was born in Hampstead in 1903 and educated at Hertford College, Oxford. In 1928 he published his first novel, Decline and Fall, which was soon followed by Vile Bodies, Black Mischief (1932), A Handful of Dust (1934) and Scoop (1938). During these years he also travelled extensively and converted to Catholicism. In 1939 Waugh was commissioned in the Royal Marines and later transferred to the Royal Horse Guards, experiences which informed his Sword of Honour trilogy (1952-61). His most famous novel, Brideshead Revisited (1945), was written while on leave from the army. Waugh died in 1966.
