Lunchtime read: Scoop

This book is starting to feel like Graham Greene’s Our Man In Havana with the humour being based around people inventing things that actually start to happen. Complete lies turn out to have a solid basis in fact.

Highlights from Book II chapter one

Chapter one
Corker and William finally arrive in Ishmaelia to discover the place is overrun with other journalists all desperate for the story. The problem is that nothing seems to be going on so the journalists start making things up. William discovers a link in the consulate and discovers that no one really knows what is going on but there seems to be more truth to some of the strange stories than might be given credit for.

More tomorrow…
