Little help here? My mother's Bookclub is doing a modern classic for their next pick, and Mum needs to choose the book. She asked me, but I only read books that go BOOM, or nonfiction titles for work. So I'm of no use.
I did think Evelyn Waugh's Scoop would be a good choice. But Mum would like a few more.
So, something published in the last, say, 100 years, that's a recognised classic, and a bit humorous.
Anyone got anything?
