Ry The New York Review of Books is Kapuscinski's rendition of their accounts humorous frightening sad grotesue of a man living amidst nearly unimaginable pomp and luxury while his people teetered between hunger and starvatio. A little lesson in the blurred lines between reportage and fiction a detailed account of the fall of Haile Sellasie given by the ministers and servants who once waited upon him Not of course that you d ever believe these are direct transcriptions of interviews or that Kapuscinski hasn t modified and tailored these accounts as he sees fit unless you believe all of the ministers speak in an identical fantastical ironical language I suppose if you have narrow ideas of what constitutes nonfiction you might find this sort of thing offensive but if you ve already signed on to the concept that monkeying with the truth a little is the soul of all narrative fictional or otherwise it s easy to give yourself over to the story provided here Of particular note are the amazing accounts of Sellasie s court pre disillusion and the accounts of the men who propped up the emperor s legs on account of him being short in stature and therefore believed that they were personally responsible for supporting the empire Really though every sentence here is a winner and the level of irony is so delicious it s difficult not to try and extend your lunch break to finish each section Also according to those in the know a winking satire of Communist bureaucratic wrangling Also according to others who are also in the know but don t agree with the first people in the know written as a Marxist propaganda tract to expose the futility of Western sponsored capitalist schemes However will we discern the truth But from my resolutely non partisan perspective a grand old time indeed A Bookmarked Death (Delhi Laine Mystery teetered between hunger and starvatio.
