The Edinboro University Book Discussion Group will meet at 6:45 pm on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 to discuss Evelyn Waugh’s novel A Handful of Dust. This will be our last meeting until late August. All are welcome to join us in Baron-Forness Library room 715.
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. Murderously urbane, it depicts the breakup of a marriage in the London gentry, where the errant wife suffers from terminal boredom, and becomes enamoured of a social parasite and professional luncheon-goer.
