    Very Enjoyable Read!

    "Brideshead Revisited" is one of my favorite books so I couldn't pass this one up and I'm so glad I bought it. I couldn't put the book down. It's wonderfully written and gives the reader so much insight into the iconic era of the "Bright Young Things" and their way of life. If anyone thought the "Boomers" were wild when they were young one needs to read about Evelyn Waugh and his generation in the '20's.

    Wonderful background for Brideshead fans

    This book was scholarly but great fun: I stayed up late and woke up early to finish it. I didn't know the Brideshead backstory, so it was a treat to learn about the eccentric, wealthy, and scandal-marred Lygon family, the real-life models for Sebastian, Julia & Co. I especially enjoyed the ways in which the fictional Brideshead mansion were based on the Lygons' home, Madresfield Court It was an interesting portrait of Waugh during this period: generous, hilarious, and kind, not at all the cranky, sickly guy he became in later life. (I'd also recommend it for any fan of the Mitfords.)
