Few writers have walked the line between farce and tragedy as nimbly as Evelyn Waugh, who employed the conventions of the comic novel to chip away at the already crumbling English class system. His 1934 novel, A Handful of Dust, is a sublime example of his bleak satirical style: a mordantly funny exposé of aristocratic decadence and ennui in England between the wars. "The most mature and the best written novel that Mr. Waugh has yet produced." (New Statesman & Nation). Listed by Modern Library as one of the 100 great novels of the twentieth century, and was chosen by Time magazine as one of the one hundred best English-language novels from 1923 to present.
