Bestseller by Saddam Husain
|A book called Unassailable Fortress by an ‘anonymous’ author has been just published in Iraq. This book is seen to be a product of Saddam Husain’s pen. Iraqi television is advertising this book which dwells on ‘fight against evil’.
If true, this is Saddam Husain’s second book. The first one was published last year and was called Zabiba and the King. The book told about love of a nice and popular-among-people king to an ordinary married woman. Zabiba embodies Iraqi nation, while her ruthless husband – the cruel West. The ruler asks Zabiba in the book: should people be kept in severity? She answers that yes, they should, because thanks to it people feel secure. After Zabiba and the King a musical was staged, and soon a screen version is slated to appear on TV.
And now – one more book by the same unknown author, whose name is known to everybody. It has been officially called "a notable artistic work." In the novel, there is again a hint at opposition to the West. Combination of love, patriotism, adventures and open sexual passage should probably raise spirits of Iraqi people. According to Christian Science Monitor, not only Iraqis are impatiently waiting for the book, even Western intelligence analysts are looking forward to read between the lines. They will religiously study every word to determine Husain’s moral and psychological condition.
There were some troubles with jacket of the second book. At the beginning of this year, a Canadian artist announced Hussein had stolen a reserved illustration from him. At the cover, a beautiful woman surrounded by butterflies and doves was pictured.
Edition of Unassailable Fortress is very opportune. Americans consider Iraq to be the second possible target of the anti-terrorist operation. The strike could be delivered any day. In his book, Husain hints at Iraq being able to overcome the evil. Saddam is said not keen to place his name on his books due to ‘modesty,’ while all the income is spent for help on poor people. With professional literary men’s help, Saddam Husain wrote many articles and treatises on different subjects...
