Mr Loveday's Little Outing and Other Early Stories
In this unique collection of Waugh's early short stories, some of which became the inspirations for his novels, Waugh displays his unique talent for comedy and narration. 'Mr Loveday's Little Outing' is a blackly comic tale of a mental asylum and its favourite resident, while 'Cruise' sees a hilarious series of letters from a na ve young woman as she travels with her family. These witty and immaculately crafted stories display the finest writing of a master of satire and comic twists.
