Finished Evelyn Waugh's "Decline and Fall." Sad, funny, ironic and entertainingly scathing look at his times. Probably our times as well. Crumbling and amoral British society after WWI, rather like a dark Wodehouse. Bertie Wooster makes a more lively and less depressing read. Still, for some reason I like Waugh's books. This makes the fourth I've read in the last several years.
