Q&A …

… Alexander McCall Smith on his love for Robert Burns, Barbara Pym and Evelyn Waugh | HeraldScotland. (Ht tip, Dave Lull.)

I have long admired Evelyn Waugh’s trilogy about the Second World War, the Sword of Honour novels. Guy Crouchback is a wonderfully sympathetic character and there is an extraordinary, grave beauty to Waugh’s writing in these books. I would have liked to have written them.
