WAUGH, Evelyn. Scoop.

(London): Chapman and Hall, 1948.  Issued as part of the Uniform Edition, originally published in 1938.  Octavo.  241 pages.  A nice copy  of this, the supreme novel of the 20th-century English newspaper world, fast, light, entertaining and lethal. Remarkably, it’s a satire revered among successive generations of British hacks, the breed so mercilessly skewered by Waugh, a one-time special correspondent for the Daily Mail. Even in the age of online journalism, with many old practices facing extinction, its insights into the British press remain sharp, pertinent and memorable.   A very good copy in dust jacket.
