Email Barbara to join us and discuss Evelyn Waugh’s second novel, which begins as surreal social comedy before making an abrupt descent into darker, more bitter territory. The novel is great preparation for A Handful of Dust, which we’ll be reading in June.Alternatively, comment below to kickstart the conversation online.

When: Saturday 17th May, 11.00am-1.00pm

Where: Leicester Central Library
