Overview

Hollywood Hussein's hilariously scathing depiction of the events surrounding Saddam's capture not only will have you laughing, but the book's shocking final twist will also make you question everything you see on the news, not to mention the next thing you hear out of a politician's mouth.

Told through the first-person accounts of those who conspired to pull off "Operation Hollywood," the story is told in the imagined words of a diverse cast of both fictional and real-life characters, including George Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Arnold Schwarzenegger, reality TV producer Mark Burnett, "professional celebrity" Paris Hilton, and last but not least Saddam Hussein.

What People are saying about this

Kary McHoul Gatens
"A great comedic take on the pop culture world we live in. A very quick, fun read. Any book with Paris Hilton and Saddam Hussein in it is a must read! The book depicts reality TV at its finest -- finding Saddam!"
*#151;Sr. Vice President Fox Broadcasting and reality TV executive
Lindsay May
"Hollywood Hussein is both hilarious and a scary-but-true assessment of our celebrity culture. Ken combines humor with a more serious underlying message: that political communications can often mirror the publicity and marketing machine found in Hollywood."
