What I did in the holidays is deservedly a cliche for a tired English writing class task but when the pen writing the account is that of Evelyn Waugh it becomes something different even when the actual underlying structure remains the same This really is the account of what Evelyn did in his holiday in 1930 if I remember right when he took ship from Portsmouth and fetched up in the Mediterranean It s the tale of people met restaurants eaten in a particular concern of Waugh s and the minutiae of travelling a well worn road Unlike his later travel books Waugh was not bringing anywhere unknown to light but simply commenting on the familiar He doesn t even really shed any particularly new light on the familiar But it s the writing the sheer brilliant crystalline precision of the writing that makes it all worthwhile So while the skeleton is the same tired old English writing task it s made somehow transl

Evelyn Waugh ↠ 0 REVIEW

N priests to Maltese sailors and Moroccan merchants as he cruises around the Mediterranean his pen cuts through the local color to give a highly entertaining portrait of the Englishman abro. I told him to drive me to the cathedral but he took me instead to a house of evil characterWaugh made a tour of the Mediterranean by ship in 1929 with noteworthy stops in Monaco Naples Sicily Port Said Cairo Istanbul Venice Split Algiers Barcelona and Gibraltar All these places or most of them at any rate had been visited and visited and written and written about by just about every literate man woman and child of the past hundred years Everything Waugh figured had already been labeled hence the title And yet his travelogue is fresh and funny and full of unexpected glimpses This is not one of his great novels I doubt the young Waugh could have imagined anyone would be reading this travel book almost 90 years after its first publication but Labels is a real pleasure

    Not strictly a book on Spain as it touches other countries at the time However the great writer did visit Spain and left behind some surprisingly acute observation for such a short stint For reason alone I recommend this
