Michael Malice's 'Dear Reader: The Unauthorized Autobiography of Kim Jong Il'
"Michael Malice is one of those uniquely New York characters. An immigrant from the former Soviet Union, the thirty-six year old with spikey hair, cunning eyes, and a constant mischievous grin has made a name for himself in a number of strange ways. Malice is taking an Orwell approach to exploring the insanity that built this evil system. Like Orwell explained the horrors of Stalinism in a children’s book about talking farm animals, Malice is the ventriloquist for the mass-murdering dummy that is Jong-il."

thinks might be the real challenge."
