Vile Bodies is the second book by Evelyn Waugh and was published in 1930. Like Waugh's first novel Decline and Fall, Vile Bodies is set in 1920s high society London. This book is a witty satirical observation of the group of Bright Young Things whose privileged lifestyle entitles them to non-stop partying and wild antics that frequently made the gossip columns of tabloids. Evelyn Waugh's first book Decline and Fall was hugely successful, and Brideshead Revisited is Waugh's best known work. Vile Bodies never reached the same acclamation.
Vile Bodies was my Classics Club Spin book. In the past I have read and loved Evelyn Waugh's The Loved One and Brideshead Revisited. Amazingly good and contemporary feeling. FREE shipping on qualifying offers.

In the years following the First World War a new generation emerges, wistful and vulnerable beneath the glitter. The Bright Young Things of twenties' Mayfair, with their paradoxical mix of innocence and sophistication, exercise their inventive minds and vile bodies in every kind of capricious escapade - whether promiscuity, dancing, cocktail parties or sports cars.
