Black Mischief (1932) is another classic Evelyn Waugh satire of colonialism of the British Empire in a fictional Eastern African country. It is my understanding that the novel was out of print for some time due to racist language and stereotypes. The story mostly concerns Seth, an oxford-educated emperor of the fictional Azania, and his adventure seeking fellow classmate Basil Seal. It seems the Europeans get most of the brunt of Waugh's satire, but he doesn't leave anyone untouched. As usual there are some great comic sequences and bon mots throughout the novel.
