The central character in Evelyn Waugh's novel, Scoop -set during the Italo-Ethiopian War of 1936 - is one William Boot, a nature journalist mistakenly dispatched to cover a foreign war, and finding himself deep in the middle of danger and political absurdity. The story is based on the true exploits of one Bill Deedes, upon whom Waugh based Boot, and here for the first time Deedes tells the real story of his adventures in Abyssinia in the 1930s, in his own unique and hilarious way. A SIGNED and unread UK first edition with a complete number string which includes the number 1.
