On sale at the Hilton

Thanks to Yemane Tsegaye for sending me this photo of the Shama bookshop at the Hilton Hotel in Addis Ababa. Great to see Imperial Exile in the thick of it!



Mentioned in dispatches

Was pleased to receive a namecheck in a recent newsletter of Ben Howlett MP who represents Bath. This is what he wrote: “It is a little known fact that Emperor Haile Selassie of Abyssinian spent his exile in the Second World War here in Bath. If you want to read more about it there is a great book by Keith Bowers.”

Greek Club

I have had some great support in Ethiopia during the launch of Imperial Exile. This photo was taken after dinner at the Greek Club in Addis Ababa.
