(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) In honor of the hundredth anniversary of Evelyn Waugh’s birth, four of the master’s most wickedly scathing comedies are here brought together in one volume. Black Mischief is Waugh at his most mischievous–inventing a politically loopy African state as a means of pulverizing politics at home. In Scoop, it is journalism’s turn to be drawn and quartered. The Loved One (which became a famously hilarious film) sends up the California mortuary business. And The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold is a burst of fictionalized autobiography in which Pinfold goes mad, more or less, on board an ocean liner. Here in four short–very different–novels are the mordant wit, inspired farce, snapping dialogue, and amazing characters that are the essence of everything Waugh ever wrote.… (mere)

_Black Mischief_ and _Scoop_ are based on Waugh's trips to Abyssinia (Ethiopia). The first mocks the politics of the region and the European residents, the second mocks the British press and the preconceived notions shaping the coverage of the Italian invasion. _The Loved One_ mocks the American funeral industry as manifest in Forest Lawn in Hollywood and the beginnings of pet cemeteries. _The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold_ is a tale of a man trapped in hallucinations caused by an injudicious mixing of prescription medications and alcohol.

Four unbeatable novels. "The Loved One" made into a superb movie.
