When the Going Was Good
Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd
Between 1929 and 1935 Evelyn Waugh travelled widely and wrote four books about his experiences. In this collection he writes about a cruise around the Mediterranean, a train trip from Djibouti to Abyssinia to attend Emperor Haile Selassie's coronation in 1930, his travels in Aden, Zanzibar, Kenya and the Congo, coping with heat and mosquitoes, a journey to Guyana and Brazil, and his return to Addis Ababa in 1935 to report on the war between Abyssinia and Italy. Waugh's experiences gave him the ideas for such novels as “Scoop” and “White Mischief”.
