William Boyd

This could be the perfect comic novel – the misadventures of a young man in the wrong place at the wrong time. Order disturbed, chaos and disorder, order restored. Waugh’s immaculate deadpan prose is amazing and the book is extremely funny. The chapter detailing Mr Salter’s visit to Boot Magna in darkest England is the funniest piece of comic writing ever.
