Publisher's Summary

A satiric novel by Evelyn Waugh, published in 1930.

Set in England between the wars, the novel 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.

    "hilarious tale of the bright young things"

    interwar years filled with booze and parties and the impending doom of WWII. Robert Hardy is brilliant as ever.

    "Excellent narration"

    Talented narration made the book worth listening to. What skill. All books should have this quality of narration from talented actors/authors.
