    Evelyn Waugh was a snob a racist an anti semite and a fascist sympathiser whose attitude was in the words of his biographer David Wykes Waugh's racism was an illogical extension of his views on the naturalness and rightness of hierarchy as the main principle of social organisation He was also jealous personally nasty and malicious had been a bully at school and as James Lees Milne said the nastiest tempered man in England Waugh was however absolutely devoted to his adopted religion Catholicism and generally friendly welcoming and generous to other Catholics Nancy Mitford asked him how he reconciled his often objectionable conduct and attitude with being a Christian said he replied that were he not a Christian he would be even horribleAll of this is on display in this absolutely hilarious farce of a book and right at the beginning the tone is set That’s Mrs Cohen” said Effie “You see how it is They’re Yids”“Sure it isn’t the nigger downstairs you want?”Scoop is a satire on journalism and the newspaper industry in general based on his own experiences or rather that of a fellow war correspondent for the Daily Mail covering the Abyssinian Italian war Although the characters are so utterly defined by the mythical racial characteristics assigned to them by an unkind world it is still easy to laugh The snobbery which the non ethnic characters displayed was eually harsh and that is perhaps the key as to why such an ostensibly nasty book by such an unpleasant man is so funny he must have seen himself in all of this He was gifted with the sly sharp instinct for self preservation that passes for wisdom among the rich and so it's a bit of a send up and that's something we can all appreciate The writing is wonderful just as it was in his opus magnum Brideshead Revisited the humour extravagant the denoument ridiculous All in all recommended to everyone who likes period pieces that aren't uite nor ever will be classics

    There’s a song on Tusk by Fleetwood Mac where the chorus is “not that funny is it” repeated over over this did spring into my mind as I was a reading Scoop but I opposed Lindsey Buckingham’s punkish sneer with an urbane “no but it is amusing” as in it kind of makes you nearly smile inwardly almost the whole time except when of course as you must expect this being Evelyn Waugh talking about a fictionalized Ethiopia in 1938 you hit the old colonial casual racism so be warned that there are three or four n words one darky and one coon – and a couple of yids but beyond that the usual farce of ridiculous white people blundering around and surprisingly less caricatured black people trying to extract the maximum amount of western currency from them while they do so and picking them up when the goat connects with their rear ends This is one of Robert McCrum’s 100 Best Novels in English EVER so I think that indicates you can’t believe a word that Robert McCrum says because if ever there was a three star novel Scoop is it You might say that the way fake news is created and parleyed into real news very prescient of Evelyn Waugh is a solid subject for satire but you may also say that treating western manipulation of African countries as a contemptuously easy chess game between various Powers is as Lindsey says NOT THAT FUNNY

    Biting and cruel and ever so Waugh this read aged well enough in its characters and mostly well in the events that illuminate them I read this about 35 years ago alongside Waugh in Abyssinia for a journalism course I am sure that's the reason I liked the book as well as I did since I disliked William Boot with vigorous and vitriolic epithetryLord Copper the vile capitalist was Falstaffian fun but I suspect I'd find him less so in my own old manhood All in all a slightly too small armchair from younger limber days yet always among my mental furniture

    25 starsI’ve read little Waugh apart from Brideshead Revisited which I loved; Waugh is writing there about the decline of the upper classes and writing about people he knew This is a comic novel about Journalism and the newspaper industry and is a very effective satire Lord Copper the tyrannical and megalomaniac newspaper boss was said to be based on Lord Northcliffe but was probably also part Beaverbrook and Hearst The story is based on Waugh’s experiences working for the Daily Mail as a foreign correspondent covering Mussolini’s invasion of Abyssinia in 1935 Ethiopia is changed to the imaginary state of Ishmaelia Lord Copper owner of the Daily Beast has learnt that something is going on in Ishmaelia As his best correspondent has recently transferred to the Daily Brute he is in need of a new one A certain Mr John Boot a writer is recommended As it happens William Boot writes an obscure countryside column for the paper He is mistakenly called to London and given the job Boot is sent to Ishmaelia with large amounts of useless luggage where he meets lots of other journalists including Americans and French They look for communists and fascists and for the promised civil war Of course little is going on so the journalists make it up William has adventures falls briefly in love William also has his moment when something actually does happen There is a good cast of supporting characters; many of whom are based on people Waugh knew The character of William Boot is said to be loosely based on Bill Deedes who had been with Waugh covering the situation in Abyssinia Deedes was 22 at the time and his newspaper had sent him out with a uarter of a ton of baggage Deedes spent the next 65 years denying thisThis is a funny and well written novel and was in the Observer list of the one hundred greatest novels of all time The satire of the newspaper industry still has relevance today and is very pertinent However there are problems for me with the whole This was written in 1938 and one would expect with a robust writer like Waugh some issues with language That is an understatement; Waugh is anti Semitic and racist and his approach to other races is execrable He was a clear believer in hierarchy and very misanthropic Cyril Connolly referred to him as a permanent adolescent Christopher Hitchens has argued that Waugh’s many faults dislikes and contempt for other human beings makes his cruelty funny as a novelist and writer I remain unconvinced and Orwell who was an exact contemporary made a thoughtful comment in some notes for an unwritten essay on Waugh; Waugh was “almost as good a novelist as it is possible to be while holding untenable opinions”Waugh’s satire of tabloid journalism and its complacent corruption is still prescient but his attitudes and opinions are awful

    Second time readingFile this under guilty pleasures I'm well outraged isn't the right word made weary by the dreariness of the other reviews of this book plot summaries gestures towards its transhistorical narratives or towards its capturing that peculiar moment before the Nazis invaded Poland and hamfisted comparisons to P G Wodehouse different sort of writer entirely although hilariously Wodehouse does get a shoutout as the plot winds down And then well there's the fact that the book is terribly racist It's not racist in a Mein Kampf or Turner Diaries kind of way; there's no particular program Waugh wants to push; but the novel nevertheless goes hand in thoughtless hand with the postwar atrocities committed by Britain in Kenya Is this attitude inevitable? Simply a record of its time?Of course not Don't be foolishThat said it's delightful I'm of course reminded of A J Liebling's war journalism The plot should be a model for plots everywhere The odd mixture of affection and contempt is characteristic of the best humor writing see for example Diary of a Nobody or Cold Comfort Farm I'm going a bit too far here it's clear that Waugh finds the expropriation of Africa's natural resources by European colonial powers distasteful And that's somethingI'd suggest however starting with The Loved One

    Review was first posted on BookLikes nearly two weeks now the bent and creased copy of Scoop sitting on my desk has been staring at me Patiently Waiting whether I was going to write a review or not On finishing the book I had exactly two feelings about it 1 As far as satire of the press goes Waugh created the most delicious and entertaining spoof I could have imagined However 2 This book contained so many openly racist and chauvinist remarks that even Fleming's Live and Let Die which I had finished just before Scoop looks like an enlightened and unbiased work promoting intercultural understanding For the best part of the last two weeks I have looked at my old copy of Scoop and wondered whether to chuck it onto the charity shop pile or straight into the bin It's not a book I would recommend unreservedly Even looking at Waugh as a representative of a time when sentiments of racial or cultural stereotyping were common and widely accepted I wonder whether there was a need for it in Scoop because this was not a part of the book that was satirical Or if it was this did not come across well So while I am glad that I have read Scoop I expected Much


  7. Daniel Daniel says:

    This book made me laugh out loud something that books rarely do Then again I don't read comical fiction Still I suspect that were I to look into the genre Waugh would stand out in the crowdThis is the third book that I've read from Waugh's work and of the three it is the clear favorite Along with his usual talent for razzing British societal mannerisms Waugh adds his satirical take on foreign policy in a small developing country that is ostensibly under threat of civil war What starts as a jab against hyperbolic journalism and a total lack of understanding amongst policy makers turns into an absurd spectacle that even includes a measure of swashbucklingIt feels like Waugh had fun writing this tale and his powers of description are so apt that the feeling is catching Here for example Waugh sketches the front yard of a woman who rents out rooms on her propertyThe Pension Dressler stood in a side street and had at first glance the air rather of a farm than of a hotel Frau Dressler's pig tethered by one hind trotter to the jamb of the front door roamed the yard and disputed the kitchen scraps with the poultry He was a prodigious beast Frau Dressler's guests prodded him appreciatively on their way to the dining room speculating on how soon he would be ripe for killing The milch goat was allowed a narrower radius; those who kept strictly to the causeway were safe but she never reconciled herself to this limitation and day in day out essayed a series of meteoric onslaughts on the passers by ending at the end of her rope with a jerk which would have been death to an animal of any other species One day the rope would break; she knew it and so did Frau Dressler's guests 156Phrases such as meteoric onslaught are an excellent example of the skillful hand that Waugh brings to languageOnly one aspect of this book did not work whatsoever and that is the rampant racism that Waugh shows for black people It is a sad and foolish shortcoming much like the racism that Robert Howard succumbed to in his adventure stories It is possible that Waugh is going for humor when he tosses around slurs and epithets but if this is the case he goes too far and employs them with a discomforting fluencyOtherwise I very much enjoyed this book I trust Waugh to make me laugh and I am sure that I will turn to his work again in the future

    We know that there will be general confusion by the people employed to keep it together Newspaper novel where are the machines the news the excitement? Plot? Character? The main character gets confused a true staple of Waugh but it really doesn't matter at the end with these White Britons being interchangeable anyway This is my first wah wah wah experience by Waugh Handful of Dust Decline Fall Brideshead Revisited Vile Bodies these are superb in a way that this one just isn't


  9. Howard Olsen Howard Olsen says:

    Waugh followed the near perfect Handful of Dust with Scoop an absolutely perfect Newspaper Adventure that satirizes journalism especially as practiced by foreign correspondents This was the perfect topic for Waugh; not only did he work throughout a career as a foreign correspondent journalists are a recurring stock character in his fiction Inevitably Waugh portrays journalists as drunk fast talking adventurers who are not above making up a story in their pursuit of fame and fortune the basic story finds young gentleman William Boot who writes a gardening column is mistakenly sent to the african nation of Ishmaelia to cover the civil war that is supposed to be raging there Instead of finding a civil war Boot finds the mix of journalists freebooters marxists fascists and ex pats who were a regular feature of life in the Third World throughout the 20th century In fact if you have read PJ O'Rourke's Holidays In Hell you'll be amazed how these characters survived 50 years after Waugh was writing Ishmaelia is a Liberia style nation which is being fought over by successive groups of communist subversives including a college educated boxer from Alabama sinister fascists and assorted plunderers Boot manages to run into everybody and inadvertently becomes a famous writer Waugh's knowledge of Africa and the people fighting over its spoils gives this book a verisimilitude that is rare in the world of satire Some gripers I see have declared this book to be fatally flawed because it is racist They are absolutely right The relentless mockery of white anglo saxons in this book is absolutely merciless No one is spared The landed class is portrayed as impoverished bores living in drafty manors Newspaper publishers are portrayed as pompous starched shirts who live to make windy speeches at awards banuets African explorers are portrayed as amoral profiteers stealing the natural resources from African natives Journalists are not heroic Dan Rathers who Speak Truth To Power; they are drunk ignorant rascals who are little better than fiction writers Waugh even manages to take some gratuitous whacks at such sacrosanct elements of British life like gardeners and WW1 vets Still I was able to read through all of this cruelty and I would urge sensitive types to do the same; or at least get a grip This is Waughian satire at its best It's tightly plotted filled with detail and very funny In fact The uality of his craftsmanship is at a very high level His ability to set a scene whether at a manor house a newspaper office a colonial outpost or a stuffy banuet gives this book a grounding in reality that makes the humor even biting if you just want to read one satire by Waugh this would be the place to start with Dust as the best of his serious books


  10. Elizabeth Elizabeth says:

    Journalists seem to love this guy He's awfully snarky for a writer from the 1930s but oh so good A uick read Scoop is about a man named John Boot gets accidentally sent to Ishmaila as a foreign correspondent The fellow manages to report some news after blazing through his budget and falling in love with a married gold digger named Katchen Meanwhile Waugh paints a hilarious portrait of foreign correspondent idiots creating fake news and running around chasing ridiculous leads It's not the nicest picture of journalists but pretty funny And Waugh creates the most ridiculous situations in his novels
