This vintage book contains A. G. Macdonell’s 1938 novel, “The Autobiography of a Cad”. Written as a memoir of the life of Edward Fox-Ingleby, it spans from with his earliest memories of his family’s estate and his time at Eton and Oxford, to his becoming a Tory minister in 1930s England. His memoir reads like an attempt to justify his obviously immoral life-a life filled with backstabbing, misogyny, and deviousness. In spite of this, Edward portrays himself as a misunderstood gentleman of the first order. A hilarious and intelligent novel and not to be missed by fans of Macdonell’s work. A. G. Macdonell (1895-1941) was a Scottish novelist and journalist. His most famous works include: “lords and Masters”, a blunt and prescient satire and “England, Their England” (1933), a classic satirical novel that affectionately explores English urban and rural society. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with its original artwork and text.
