Summary
Laced with cynicism and truth, A Handful of Dust satirizes a certain stratum of English life where all the characters have money, but lack practically every other credential. From sleepy rural England to decadent London and the jungles of Brazil, Waugh describes the fortunes of Lady Brenda Last and her husband Tony, as her infatuation with the young man-about-town John Beaver leads to the break-up of her marriage
