""Black Mischief, " Waugh's third novel, helped to establish his reputation as a master satirist.

Profound hilarity ensues from the issuance of homemade currency, the staging of a "Birth Control Gala, " the rightful ruler's demise at his own rather long and tiring coronation ceremonies, and a good deal more mischief.
