It was only with the help of Mr. Cliffe's exhaustive notes that I was able to read Waugh's Sword of Honour trillogy.

Which I haven't read yet, but I'll definitely keep this in mind when I do. It's really a Waugh site, not just Brideshead--there's a button somewhere that goes to the top level.)

If I had seen this recipe in time I could have prepared this for our book club discussion of Brideshead last night.


English sangria. Sounds really good except for the typically weird English touch: cucumber rind?!?

Waugh visited Spring Hill College some time back in the 50s or 60s. I'm trying to remember who told me this story, it was either John Hafner or Michael Kaffer, but it involves Waugh showing up to the reading here mildly intoxicated...

I think there was a piece in the paper about that a few years ago. Not so much specifically about SHC but about Waugh's visit to Mobile. I'm sure he loathed it.

Strangely, the Companion makes me more nostalgic for Oxford than the book itself.
