Evelyn Waugh Bibliography -- BOOK LIST



Evelyn Waugh (October 28, 1903 - April 10, 1966) was an English author who wrote novels, short stories, travel books, biographies, and other nonfiction. He is probably best known for his novel, Brideshead Revisited, in part because it was made into an extremely popular tv miniseries in the 1980s, starring Jeremy Irons and Anthony Andrews. 

I first read Brideshead in college and have reread it twice since. I came much later to Waugh's other books, starting with Scoop, a hilarious satire of newspaper life. Just thinking of the premise of sending the gardening columnist to be a war correspondent makes me laugh. I've since read several others, which are darkly funny and much different than Brideshead. I hope to read all his book eventually.

Below is a list of Waugh's published books, with notes about whether I've read them, they are on my TBR shelf, or if they are available as an audiobook from my library. Unless noted, the book is a novel. This list does not include juvenilia or short pieces not published in book form.

  • 1952 Men at Arms (Sword of Honor trilogy, Book One) TBR SHELF
  • 1931 Remote People (aka They Were Still Dancing; travel writing)


Waugh's travel writing was published in a 2003 omnibus collection by Everyman's Library called 
Waugh Abroad: The Collected Travel Writing. Many of the individual volumes are out of print and hard to find, so I linked to this omnibus. 

There is a book of Complete Short Stories in Work Suspended; the hard to find novella, Love Among the Ruins; and other short fiction. 

There are several biographies of Evelyn Waugh. The one I have and intend to read is Evelyn Waugh: A Life Revisited by Philip Eade.
