Fiendish Friday Quiz
Now, as you know, all our Evelyn Waugh Newsletter/Studies are available online – so I could just direct the interested to Volume 24 No 2 where, alongside the answers you’ve all been waiting for, you will also find a somewhat surprising article on Sebastian Flyte and Charles Ryder’s relationship and a thought-provoking discussion of literacy […]
