His colleagues are an assortment of misfits, rascals and fools, including Prendy (plagued by doubts) and Captain Grimes, who is always in the soup (or just plain drunk). Then Sports Day arrives, and with it the delectable Margot Beste-Chetwynde, floating on a scented breeze. As the farce unfolds and the young run riot, no one is safe, least of all Paul.Hide synopsis

Not having read anything by Evelyn Waugh I saw this on Alibris and bought it.
I have read many times how good an author he is so I was looking forward to something intelligent and witty.
I'm sorry to say that I found it to be utter rubbish - ponderous "humour", if that's not too strong a word, daft unconvincing plot, and altogether very disappointing. I read in the blurb on the cover that it was a big seller when it came out, hence the heading.
