Evelyn Waugh’s Decline and Fall…. Breezy ? I can’t really recommend it. Good fun, but so unsubstantial. And sometimes atrocious. Like a novel for the summer at the Hamptons, about the Hamptons… people must have read it to see if they were in it. Bartelby and Benito Cereno… by Herman Melville…. Both take you back to bygone eras. Pirates ? Slave ships ? Scriveners ?
