One of four of Waugh's early travel books Remote People records the author's trip to Ethiopia in 1930 to cover the coronation of Emperor Haile Selassie, followed by a tour of the Aden Protectorate, Zanzibar and the Belgian Congo and Cape Town. Full of arresting sketches of fellow travellers and others, including a character who would not have been out of place in one of Waugh's own novels, an eccentric professor of Byzantine art who was 'a mine of impressive misinformation'.
