Evelyn Waugh was known for his cutting critiques of English high -- and low -- society of the 1920s and ''30s. "Vile Bodies" finds him at the peak of his form. This story of impoverished writer and high-society hanger-on Adam Fenwick-Symes recounts his endless attempts to wed heiress Nina Blount. The unforgettable cast of zanies includes American evangelist Mrs. Ape, the modern Mrs. Runcible, a revolving line of Prime Ministers, and the inimitable Mr. Chatterbox. Waugh''s coruscating wit and surprisingly serious ending are well-served by this dramatic audio version.
