4.2 14
by Evelyn Waugh
 

See All Formats & Editions

In SCOOP, surreptitiously dubbed a "newspaper adventure," Evelyn Waugh flays Fleet Street and the social pastimes of its war correspondents. He tells how William Boot became the star of British super-journalism and how, leaving the part of his shirt in the claws of the lovely Katchen, he returned from Ishmaeilia to London as the Daily Beast's most accoladed overseas

out of all the evelyn waugh books ive read this is probably the funniest and most enjoyable one. it's a great introduction to waugh's novels.

Waugh's look at the witty follies of journalism is without a doubt one of the zeniths of satire in British literature. The characters are sharp, as is the dialogue, and the irony of William Boot's ordeal is beyond hilarious.

This story was a continuous poke at journalists and British people in general. I recommend it.

Waugh's satire of the press sixty years ago is as true as ever with the explosion in 24 hour cable news networks. Rumor becomes fact in the hands of 'jounalists' looking to break news that does not exist.

The least interesting book I have read in a long time. A waste of money and time.
