Banned Book Giveaway
One of my Favorite Stories

The most nostalgic and reflective of Evelyn Waugh's novels, "Brideshead Revisited" looks back to the golden age before the Second World War. It tells the story of Charles Ryder's infatuation with the Marchmains and the rapidly-disappearing world of privilege they inhabit. Enchanted first by Sebastian at Oxford, then by his doomed Catholic family, in particular his remote sister, Julia, Charles comes finally to recognize only his spiritual and social distance from them.

About the Author
Evelyn Waugh (1903-1966) was born into a publishing family in Hampstead, England, and educated at Oxford. After a brief stint as a schoolmaster, he turned to writing. His biography of Dante Gabriel Rossetti appeared in 1928, but it was his sensational first novel, Decline and Fall, published the same year, that set the course for his career. Waugh wrote sixteen novels, including The Loved OneScoop, andBrideshead Revisited.

    My favorite from your list of banned books has to be Lord of the Rings. I can't believe anyone would ever want to ban that.

  14. I love The Great Gatsby, but I didn't know it was banned until I read your post. The Lord of the Rings was also one of my favourites growing up (still love it, of course).

  25. Thanks for the giveaway and for opening it to worldwide entries.

    My favorite of the banned boks mentioned is To Kill a Mockingbird both because it is a great coming of age novel and because it addreses the subject of racism.

    I would select Brideshead Revisited, by Evelyn Waugh if I win as it has been a long time since I read it and I don't have a copy on my bookshelf.

    Thanks.
