Through the story of Charles Ryder's entanglement with the Flytes, a great Catholic family, Evelyn Waugh charts the passing of the privileged world he knew in his own youth and vividly recalls the sensuous pleasures denied him by wartime austerities.
At once romantic, sensuous, comic, and somber, Brideshead Revisited transcends Waugh's early satiric explorations and reveals him to be an elegiac, lyrical novelist of the utmost feeling and lucidity.

Wow, Jeremy Irons is formidable & the story great!
The story at the end is breath taking and the voice of Jeremy Irons just fitting. Seldomly was so impressed by a speaker and narration. Looking forward to getting to know Waugh even better now.
