This is a 1986 Penguin edition of Scoop by Evelyn Waugh. It features a stunning cover design by Bentley/Farrell/Burnett. It comes curated with three surprise vintage treats. 


Lord Copper, the newspaper magnate, prided himself on a flair for discovering ace reporters. But owing to a slight case of mistaken identity the man he picked to 'cover' the civil war in the African Republic of Ishmaelia was less than a novice at the business.  Scoop is an irreverent novel about Fleet Street and its hectic pursuit of hot news, narrated with all Waugh's exuberant sense of satire.
