Journal Entry 1 by asia_be_es from Warszawa, Mazowieckie Poland on Friday, July 13, 2018
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 [www.goodreads.com]

I found it some time ago in one of the Uccle book boxes (Place Saint-Job).

I enjoyed this book but... I can't say I find it one of the best English-language novels. Maybe it's a question of nationality or background or different kind of sense of humour or...Whatever.
There's Brideshead revisited on my TBR shelf, perhaps I'll change my mind.
