Something in the same vein as his novels? At first I was like 'Oh too bad he never finished his autobiobraphy' but in the end well I'm glad this is all there is to it It was interesting to get an insight into the author's early life and also to learn about English schooling back then but absolutely none of this was essential reading For Waugh completists only
