Abstract:

"Ingenius, satirical, extremely funny ... Mr. Waugh's ribald wit spurts in a brisk uninterrupted flow upon the caprices of sensational journalism. 'Scoop' is entertaining reading all through, with more than a single good laugh or chuckle to the page." Times Literary Supplement. "With this book, England's wittiest novelist sets a new standard for comic extravaganza ... The one real message concerning 'Scoop' is that it is thoroughly enjoyable, uproariously funny, and that everyone should get a copy at once." New York Times Book Review.
