At War With Waugh The Real Story Of Scoop by W. F Deedes( Recording )

2 editions published in 2004 in Undetermined and English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A delightful book of memoir from one of Britain's most beloved journalists One of Evelyn Waugh's most popular novels is SCOOP. It is an exuberant, hilarious comedy of mistaken identity and a brilliant satire on Fleet Street and its relentless and hectic pursuit of hot news set during the Italo-Ethiopian War of 1936. It tells the story of William Boot, a nature journalist mistakenly dispatched to cover a foreign war, and finding himself deep in the middle of danger and political absurdity. Unknown to many, the story is based on the true exploits of one Bill Deedes, upon whom Waugh based Boot, and here for the first time Deedes tells the real story of his adventures in Abyssinia in the 1930s, in his own unique and hilarious way. It is a story of amateurish bungles and almost Pythonesque incongruities
