Get out of here, curse you


is the name of Saddam Hussein's new novel -- just released in Japan. The translator says it "has a melodic clarity to it that suggests it could be adapted to the stage." He thinks it should be made into a musical and play in the U.S.

It's not autobiographical, so we don't have to post bets on who would play the big man...but Harvey Fierstein would be my choice to play the male lead.

Oh, and the cover has SH's likeness surrounded by violets. Truly.
