George Thomas Clark about this book: There are no characters more lovable than those who believe they should rule the world. In these creative columns, written from first-person perspectives of the self-righteous leaders themselves, we see Saddam Hussein in a hole, wearing a ragged beard, and George W. Bush staggering as he battles John Kerry in the 2004 presidential race, and camouflaged Kerry hunting geese in Ohio, and we visit Saddam in prison where he gets a surgically enhanced brain and enjoys passionate letters from female pursuers. Meanwhile, the eternal Bush continues to lecture about the necessity for war, and his ace henchmen, Dick Cheney and Karl Rove, agree, and so does his favorite henchwoman, Condoleezza Rice. They're convinced America must continue fighting and commit to "the long war," that's the only way to protect Omaha. Saddam is hanged but that doesn't slow down his column writing. He watching, he's gloating, eventually he's even vowing to help his beleaguered American tormentors. Bush and Saddam and the others think they're great – that's what God and Allah want –and readers of Echoes from Saddam Hussein will wonder why.
