The Radetzky March The novel by JOSEPH ROTH (1894-1939) dramatised for radio by EVA TUCKER from the translation by GEOFFREY DUNLOP and EVA TUCKER 1 The Austro-Hungarian monarchy stepped almost without transition from a performance at the operetta into the grim theatre of the World War. I knew and loved the remarkable family of the Trottas, about whom I am writing in The Radetzky March. In their rise and fall I seem to discern the intention of that uncanny power which illustrates in the fate of one family that of a historical destiny.'

A West Country cathedral town in the early 30s, the inhabitants' roles clearly defined - clergy, trade and unemployed. A peaceful town, a little complacent perhaps, and therefore ripe for disruption; but an apparent haven for Michael Furze , home from his travels after 20 years. 1: Boanerges

' Shocked by a bad bottle of wine, an impatient stranger, or a fault in syntax, his mind, like a cinema camera, tracked in furiously forward to confront the offending object, with glaring lens ... he was absurd to many, but to some formidable.' A devastating self-portrait by Evelyn Waugh from the opening of one of his last books. The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold, which he frankly admitted was autobiographical. Evelyn Waugh died ten years ago and his personality is still an enigma to many.
This portrait of the writer is written by DOROTHY BAKER and based on CHRISTOPHER SYKES 'S recent biography.
