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.
