This title is part of the fabulous new hardback library of 24 Evelyn Waugh books, publishing in chronological order. Following the death of a friend, poet and pets' mortician Dennis Barlow finds himself entering into the artificial Hollywood paradise of the Whispering Glades Memorial Park. Within its golden gates, death, American-style, is wrapped up and sold like a package holiday. There, Dennis enters the fragile and bizarre world of Aimee, the naive Californian corpse beautician, and Mr Joyboy, the master of the embalmer's art ...A dark and savage satire on the Anglo-American cultural divide, “The Loved One” depicts a world where love, reputation and death cost a very great deal.
