    DescriptionPart of the fabulous new hardback library of 24 Evelyn Waugh books, publishing in chronological order over the coming year. The books have an elegant new jacket and text design. Perhaps the funniest travel book ever written, "Remote People" begins with a vivid account of the coronation of Emperor Ras Tafari - Haile Selassie I, King of Kings; and, an event covered by Evelyn Waugh in 1930 as special correspondent for "The Times". It continues with subsequent travels in throughout Africa, where natives rub shoulders with eccentric expatriates; and, ettlers with Arab traders and dignitaries with monks. Interspersing these colourful tales are three 'nightmares' which describe the vexations of travel, including returning home.
