bright young things summer

I ve decide to bring some 1920’s and 30’s joy in to my summer reading and read three classics of  the era I ve ordered them from library so just have to wait they are –

DECLINE AND FALL BY EVELYN WAUGH –

I ve read other Waughs this was Waughs first novel and is set in the heart of the bright young thing scene and follows paul pennyweather from heady days in Oxford to a teaching job in Wales and also his involvement in boilnger club .

PARTY GOING BY HENRY GREEN –

Henry green is someone I ve been meaning to get too for a long time , party going is a book about a group of bright young things caught in a hotel where the action all takes part in his day Green was Waughs greatest rival ,but in the last decade has fallen out of favour ,this is considered his best book .

A BUYER’S MARKET BY ANTHONY POWELL –

This is the second part of his twelve novel cycle a dance to the music of time ,last summer I read the first part of the cycle question of upbringing ,so again I join Nick Jenkins this time he has left school and uni ,now enters society in the late 20’s

A slight change from usual books but I do love english classics so be a nice summery read for me
