Reissues of Waugh’s novels a welcome 175th anniversary gift

To celebrate their 175th anniversary, Little Brown has issued hardcover editions of the novels of Evelyn Waugh. They’re all welcome, especially “Brideshead Revisited,” the original voyage into the mysteries of class and paternity that animates so much English fiction, right up to and including “Downton Abbey.” (Waugh referred to the genre as “the cult of the English country house.”)
