Description

W.F. Deedes met Evelyn Waugh in 1935. Both were in Abyssinia to cover a war which many in England regarded with bewildered indifference, but which profoundly influenced an impending global conflict. Whilst Deedes was principally concerned with filing copy to London, the author of Brideshead Revisited had another agenda and another novel in mind: Scoop. As Waugh observed hacks in seedy hotel bars in Addis Ababa, filing his copy amidst the journalistic chaos, he focussed on one young reporter. W. F. Deedes has always denied his association with Boot, the innocent abroad, but acknowledges some similarities. The author considers that 'little' war and its importance with the hindsight of sixty years of thoughtful reporting from other battlefields, whilst offering unique memories of his difficult contemporary - arguably the finest English novelist of his time.show more
