1. Vile Bodies. Evelyn Waugh. Chapman & Hall, Ltd, 1930. First edition.

    Satiric novel, set in England between the wars, examines the frenetic but empty lives of the Bright Young Things, young people who indulge in constant party-going, heavy drinking, and promiscuous sex. At the novel’s end, the realities of the world intrude, with Adam Fenwick-Symes, the protagonist, serving on a battlefield at the onset of another world war.
