In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. Published by Penguin for more than fifty years, Evelyn Waugh is one of the greatest satirical writers of the twentieth century. In this irreverent personal account of the crowning of the last Emperor of Ethiopia who inspired the Rastafarian religion he makes full use of his comic genius, brilliantly capturing the bureaucracy, lunacy and passion of a country gripped by coronation fever.
