  • Double Bling, by Edward St Aubyn. Harvill Secker, $32.99.

I expect that much of Edward St Aubyn's appeal can be put down to things other than his writing. Personally, my initial interest in the author was piqued by the comparisons to Evelyn Waugh that seemed to punctuate everything I read about him or his work. Who doesn't want more Waugh? That the comparison turned out to be an overly generous one didn't turn me off. Waugh's a hard act to follow.
