"This is a nightmare induced by the unfamiliar diet of Southern California. That region, where all men are displaced persons, is unique only in the splendid elaboration of its graveyards, and to these Mr. Evelyn Waugh turned for solace and inspiration during a brief visit. Against the background of embalming-rooms and incinerators he has contrived a neat tragedy of Anglo-American manners which we hope will amuse and instruct curious readers of both nations." Waugh's satirical novel about Los Angeles/Hollywood, British expats and the funeral & film businesses. Light toning to pages, prvious owner's name in ink on one preliminary page, light browning to fore-edge and bottom of text block, very light wear at corners and at top/bottom of spine.
