In Vile Bodies Nina Blount, a young society beauty, also loves attending parties, it is what her set do (...masked parties, Savage parties, Victorian parties, Greek parties, Wild West parties, Russian parties, Circus parties, parties where one had to dress as somebody else, almost naked parties in St John´s Wood, parties in flats and studios and houses and ships and hotels and night clubs, in windmills and swimming-baths, tea parties at school where one ate muffins and meringues and tinned crab, parties at Oxford where one drank brown sherry and smoked Turkish cigarettes, dull dances in London and comic dances in Scotland and disgusting dances in Paris - all that succession and repetition of massed humanity ... Those vile bodies...) As for political ideas and love, these themes do not seem to interest Evelyn Waugh so Nina expresses no ideas or capacity for love.
