In the days following the coup, the Polish journalist Ryszard Kapuscinski traveled to Ethiopia and sought out members of the imperial court for interviews. His composite portrait of Selassies crumbling imperium is an astonishing, wildly funny creation, beginning with the very first interview.

It was a small dog, recalls an anonymous functionary, a Japanese breed. His name was Lulu. He was allowed to sleep in the Emperors great bed. During various ceremonies, he would run away from the Emperors lap and pee on dignitaries shoes. The august gentlemen were not allowed to flinch or make the slightest gesture when they felt their feet getting wet. I had to walk among the dignitaries and wipe the urine from their shoes with a satin cloth. This was my job for ten years.

(Well, its a living.)Elsewhere, the interviewees venture into tragic or grotesque or downright unbelievable terrain. Kapuscinski has shaped their testimonies into an eloquent whole, and while he never alludes to the totalitarian regime that ruled his native Poland during the same period, the analogy is impossible to ignore.
