That's a very fine list. The Waugh selections are, I think, the blackest of his oeuvre. But it doesn't detract from their worth at all--quite the contrary. The title Handful of Dust should tell you everything--the characters move in a modern wasteland out of Eliot's poem, with (even more) humorous touches.
