If You Like Evelyn Waugh Books, You’ll Love…

Evelyn Waugh Synopses: Men at Arms is the first book in the Sword of Honour series by Evelyn Waugh. Guy Crouchback begins his career as an officer in the Royal Corps of Halberdiers. Despite his high spirits and chivalry, he fails to see much action. His idealism undaunted, Guy finds himself in West Africa and, in his first campaign, manages to blot his copybook.

Decline and Fall is a standalone novel by Evelyn Waugh. Paul Pennyfeather, innocent victim of a drunken orgy, is expelled from Oxford College, which costs him a career in the church. He turns to teaching, frequently the last resort of failures, and at Llanabba Castle meets a friend, Beste-Chetwynde. But Margot, Beste-Chetwynde’s mother, introduces him to the questionable delights of high society. Suddenly, and improbably, he is engaged to marry Margot. Just as they are about to say “I do,” Scotland Yard arrives and arrests Peter for his involvement in Margot’s white slave-trading ring.
