The iNews (an online UK newspaper) has published a list of books that all well grounded students should read (not necessarily as part of a course or degree syllabus). The list consists of both fiction and non-fiction. For example, two books (one in each category) are recommended by George Orwell: 1984 and Homage to Catalonia and by Aldous Huxley: Brave New World and Doors of Perception. A single book by Waugh is among those recommended:
Scoop by Evelyn Waugh. William Boot seeks the ‘scoop’ on the beginning of a “very promising little war” in a fictional East-African country. Waugh’s satire on fleet street sensationalism is a must read for any budding journalists.
