SCOOP BY EVELYN WAUGHI have read EvelynWaugh’s Brideshead Revisited many years ago and I loved it.
Scoop is viewed as a satirical, farcical novel. The story was plotted around the English upper class -Lord Copper of the Daily Beast and Mrs and Ms Stitch, African government- Ishmaelia, and the profession of journalism-John Boot.
The plot of the book is dividend into three You can find the plot of the story https://mantex.co.uk/scoop/
I enjoy reading the witty, old fashioned conversation between Boots and Ms Stitch. Also the funny conversation between him and African officer. However, not entirely politically correct if it was written today.
When Boots felt in love with, Katchena, a mercenary blonde prostitute who claimed to be married and need support from Boots with her husband. The story line was just outrages.
Overall, I think the book was ok to read through. However, it was never close to Brideshead Revisited which I enjoy re-reading.
