Read in March, 2007

Story of Haile Selasse's Ethiopian empire. Kap interviews a host of people who worked in the Selassie palace after his overthrow and cleverly lets them hang the Emperor with their own words. Fair bit of repetition and I miss Kap's instincts as a reporter here. By no means the best thing he's written.
