    "Sent down from Oxford after a wild, drunken party, Paul Pennyfeather is oddly surprised to find himself qualifying for the position of schoolmaster at a boys' private school in Wales. His colleagues are an assortment of misfits, rascals and fools, including Prendy (plagued by doubts) and Captain Grimes, who is always in the soup (or just plain drunk). Then Sports Day arrives, and with it the delectable Margot Beste-Chetwynde, floating on a scented breeze. As the farce unfolds in Evelyn Waugh's dazzling debut as a novelist, the young run riot and no one is safe, least of all Paul."

    "A Handful of Dust is an impressive look at the culture of our historic times. This was entertainment of the day in early twentieth century. We are taken on quite a journey of Tony and Brenda and in the end the book is well worth it and then you have to read the follow up Scoop for more of Waugh's story."

    "I couldn't finish this book. Despite having some interesting presentation on his life and religious influences, I just wan't drawn in. In all fairness, I did learn some interesting facts about Queen Elizabeth and the type of ruler she was. "

    "Awesome read. The author talks about the time period with so much confidence and it made the story feel completely authentic. I am no way an expert in the era, but I believed every single plot point and that's saying something. I've been known to nitpick. Two thumbs way up."

    "Rosetti: His life and Works was his first publication and with any author, it's nice to get a sense of who they are or were, with their first book ever written/published. The general review you'll find online are like a 3/5, but I personally thought it was worth a once through. "
