By Evelyn Waugh, adapted by Jonathan Holloway.

California, just after the Second World War: An elderly Englishman, who once made a living as a Hollywood scriptwriter, has taken in a younger version of the same species who is also struggling to make his way in the new world.

He thought he was a poet once, but now earns a living in a pet cemetery. Preoccupied with dead things, he meets a young female embalmer and suddenly everything begins to go right.

Evelyn Waugh's novel has been called 'one of the funniest and most significant books of the 20th century'.
