In decline…

Title:
Rating:
3 out of 5 stars

Read this one rather quickly as was feeling a degree of residual guilt for (a) really not enjoying Scoop and (b) having read hardly any Waugh (but see (a)). Anyway, I was genuinely surprised that I did quite enjoy it. It is a pretty unlikely set of scenarios and some fantastically absurd names (especially liked Lady Circumference) and scenes (delightful setting of Scone College).

But it did all feel pretty dated in a way that other period novels somehow don't. Anyway, an amusing enough diversion but not exactly the non-stop hilarious romp promised in the blurb.


Quality Assurance in Higher Education

Follow-up to Dangerous Medicine from Prole Art Threat

In an attempt to promote further sales and to encourage people to get hold of what will no doubt become a prized first edition, it seemed sensible to issue a reminder of this purchasing opportunity!
