Novelist and biographer Lisa Hilton has posted a one-minute video in the Why I Love This Book series explaining why Waugh’s 1945 novel Brideshead Revisited is her favorite novel. She is most impressed by the quality of the writing which managed, in a period of extreme deprivation, to convey a sense of joyfulness and luxury by recalling the recent past. Hilton has recently published a thriller entitled Maestra under her initials L.S. Hilton. This promises to be the first part of a trilogy. She is known in this parish as the author of The Horror of Love which is a study of the relationship between Nancy Mitford and Gaston Palewski. See previous post. The video can be viewed on YouTube.
