The diaries of Evelyn Waugh by Evelyn Waugh( Book )

49 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Evelyn Waugh kept a diary almost continuously from the age of seven until a year before his death in 1966. Extracts from the diaries caused sensation when they were published by the 'Observer'. They are a unique literary document of 300,000 words which provide the background to the novels which made Waugh famous, and gives a continuously sharp and baleful view of the social history of our times. The Diaries throw new light not only on Waugh's work, but on the character of a puzzling, cantankerous and formidable man."--Publisher description

Lord Beaverbrook : a life by Anne Chisholm( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I am the victim of the Furies. On the rock-bound coast of New Brunswick the waves break incessantly. Every now and then comes a particularly dangerous wave smashing viciously into the rock. It is called 'The Rage.' That's me." "When Max Aitken, Lord Beaverbrook, wrote these words to Winston Churchill at the height of World War II he was sixty-two, the second most powerful man in the kingdom and (at least in his own eyes) a potential prime minister himself. As Fleet Street's most dynamic and inventive press baron, as cabinet minister, as compulsive behind-the-scenes manipulator, he had already been playing a central role in British public life for three decades, and would continue to do so until his death in 1964. Describing himself as a force of nature was pure Beaverbrook; but no one who knew him would be likely to deny the accuracy of the description."

Anglo-Australian attitudes by Michael Davie( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking a dozen key episodes and themes, ranging from William Wentworth's attempt in the nineteenth century at setting up an imitation House of Lords, to royal visits and social snobbery, Gallipoli, the great 1920s cricketing drama of Bodyline, the alleged betrayal by Churchill of Australia in WWII, the birth of the Whingeing Pom, the classification of Australians by the British as foreigners, and the roots of the modern Republican movement, Davie has combined historical enquiry with interviews, original research, and his own encounters and experiences. He gives an account of a subject that should interest everyone who knows or hopes to know Australia, from the cricket-lovers who hate Shane Warne to the thousands with an auntie in Perth."--Jacket
