I was pleasantly surprised by this small novella, a witty satire and pleasant diversion. ‘The prolific Waugh–an English novelist and satirist perhaps best known for Brideshead Revisited-described this slim, vicious comedy as “a little nightmare produced by the unaccustomed high living of a brief visit to Hollywood.”’ I really enjoyed the scathing humor and graceful prose of this new-to-meauthor. I’ll definitely read more by him.
