Evelyn Waugh was one of literatures great curmudgeons and a scathingly funny satirist. Scoop is a comedy of Englands newspaper business of the 1930s and the story of William Boot, a innocent hick from the country who writes careful essays about the habits of the badger. Through a series of accidents and mistaken identity, Boot is hired as a war correspondent for a Fleet Street newspaper. The uncomprehending Boot is sent to the fictional African country of Ishmaelia to cover an expected revolution. Although he has no idea what he is doing and he cant understand the incomprehensible telegrams from his London editors, Boot eventually gets the big story.
