Why we love this
Tactical Exercise by Evelyn Waugh. Boston: Little Brown, 1954. First printing. The first US edition of a collection of short stories, including the first appearance of Love Among the Ruins, published independently in the UK. Since the publication of Brideshead Revisited, in 1945, Waugh had begun to reach a wide audience in America. This collection brings together 12 shorter works, including some of his most biting stories.
