Charles Ryder’s friendship with the charming Sebastian Flyte and his family begins when they are both at Oxford in 1923. Carefree days of drinking champagne and driving in the country soon end, however, as Sebastian’s health deteriorates. Questions about morality and religion are raised as the radiant tone gives way to a bleak atmosphere of shattered illusion. This an unabridged reading of Evelyn Waugh’s most romantic and controversial book, narrated by revered British actor Jeremy Irons.
