Dealer Notes
The entire issue is devoted to the first appearance of Evelyn Waugh's satirical novel about the funeral business in Los Angeles. In his introduction, Horizon editor Cyril Connolly includes the following explanation by Waugh why he chose to publish The Loved One here, rather than the usual route of a book: 'I anticipated ructions ... and one reason for my seeking publication in Horizon was the confidence that its readers were tough stuff.'
