Bookclub reads “A Handful of Dust” | 19/10/2018 | 2:30 pm-4:00 pm

Bookclub reads "A Handful of Dust"

The October read for the bookclub is “A Handful of Dust” by Evelyn Waugh.

After seven years of marriage, the beautiful Lady Brenda Last is bored with life at Hetton Abbey, the Gothic mansion that is the pride and joy of her husband, Tony. She drifts into an affair with the shallow socialite John Beaver and forsakes Tony for the Belgravia set. Brilliantly combining tragedy, comedy and savage irony, A Handful of Dust captures the irresponsible mood of the ‘crazy and sterile generation’ between the wars. This breakdown of the Last marriage is a painful, comic re-working of Waugh’s own divorce, and a symbol of the disintegration of society.
