No. 12

Evelyn Waugh

He's always wanting to be what he's not, so management decided to place him permanently in a utility role. Makes fun of his teammates with what he claims to be affection, but what is actually an acid display of his own self-loathing. The great English satirist (Vile Bodies, Scoop, The Loved One) was actually at his most powerful when he played it straight, especially in the dark, acidulous Handful of Dust.
