Vintage Penguin paperback. 'Scoop' by Evelyn Waugh. The book was originally published in 1938, and first published by Penguin in 1943. This is a 1974 reprint. 222 pages.

Waugh's rollicking satire on newspaper magnates, sensationalist journalism and foreign correspondents. Often included in lists of the 100 greatest novels of all time.

Introducing the 2000 edition in Penguin classics, Christopher Hitchens said

" in the pages of Scoop, we encounter Waugh at the mid-season point of his perfect pitch; youthful and limber, and light as
a feather"

Great cover art by Bentley/ Farrell/ Burnett!

Good vintage condition. Has school library stamps on first and last pages. Pages tight and unmarked. Crease to top right hand corner of cover. Slight scuff to top of spine.
