Saddam Hussein, Novelist.

A novel said to be written by Saddam Hussein was smuggled out of Iraq, and the manuscript has been translated into Japanese. It is entitled Devil's Dance and--here's an interesting bit--it was supposedly finished a day before the US strike on Baghdad.

I also found this particularly interesting too:
Its Japanese translator has made a plea for the former Iraqi leader to be spared the death penalty should he be found guilty by the tribunal in Baghdad.

Saddam Hussein is a witness to the troubled relationship between Iraq and the US, she says; he should be allowed to live and tell his tale.
Yes. Let him live. We need more novelists in this world. (Just as long they don't continue their careers in dictatorship.)

  1. If they come in cute collectible designs (think Penguin's 70th Anniversary collection) I bet some itchy fingers will buy them.

  2. I bet! I think an online fashion magazine has some favourable words for the Shots, so I think, yeah, the covers will be collectible. (Cute, I dunno, perhaps :p)

    (btw, for the uninitiated, we're talking about this post, and not about Saddam Hussein.)
