Waugh Named Author of the Week

A Durham University based weblog (The Bubble) has named Waugh its “Author of the Week.” Here’s an excerpt from their supporting statement:

Waugh’s education in Oxford fostered a deep love of country house society which influenced many of his novels, the most prominent of which being Brideshead Revisited. Waugh’s experience serving as a reporter on the front line during the 1935 Italian Invasion and then in World War 2 gave him huge amounts of experience upon which to draw and made him an extremely perceptive writer, able to fictionalise not only the people he met and places he went but also his mental breakdown in the 1950s.
