Scoop by Evelyn Waugh: Book Review

Recommended by Pat and Henry Leuchtman, this cynical and very funny story of poor William Boot, nature writer and heir to the threadbare family seat in Boot Magna, who through no fault of his own becomes a lauded foreign correspondent in a made up country in a made up war.

Very interesting to me as I have recently made a mild (and so far, unsuccessful) attempt at journalism for Jesse’s magazine. Writing for money and public consumption is both harder and easier than I thought. Sure, you make things up. But which things should be made up and which should be fact?
