The Loved One by Evelyn Waugh

The Loved One

by Evelyn Waugh

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
3 Hrs. 26 Min.


Following the death of a friend, the poet and pets' mortician Dennis Barlow finds himself entering the artificial Hollywood paradise of the Whispering Glades Memorial Park. Within its golden gates, death, American-style, is wrapped up and sold like a package holiday - and Dennis gets drawn into a bizarre love triangle with Aimee Thanatogenos, a naÔve Californian corpse beautician, and Mr. Joyboy, a master of the embalmer's art.

Waugh's dark and savage satire on the Anglo-American cultural divide depicts a world where reputation, love, and death cost a very great deal.
