More than six months ago I received a link to Duncan McLaren’s latest (what shall I call it?) meandering musings on Evelyn Waugh. At the time I was bogged down with writing TONY ABBOTT AND THE TIMES OF REVOLUTION and did not have the mental space to read and post the link. I have now got around it.
Duncan’s writings are for the extreme Waugh lover. Prepare for a wild ride. He had received a letter from someone who mentioned a meeting between Waugh and George Orwell. Duncan’s imagination took flight. Enjoy.
WHEN WAUGH MET ORWELL or “DOUBLEPLUSGOOD, JEEVES”
Unfortunately, due to overseas holidays and many other activities, not least my own writing, I have not kept up to date with Duncan McLaren’s highly entertaining and informative excursions with Evelyn Waugh. Here are the missing ones in order:
Holy Evelyn! June 2014
The Soldier’s Story 28 August 2014
Evelyn’s Manservant 28 August 2014
Cruise Control 22 October 2014
Duncan McLaren’s third amusing excursion with Evelyn Waugh is now on Duncan’s website HERE. This time it’s to Waugh’s champagne party in his room at the Hyde Park Hotel, Tuesday 6 August 1946 – a couple of weeks after I was born.
