    Curiosity level: Devoured the book in less than an hour! "One eyebrow like a dazzling, inverted tick of approval." -p.27 Have you ever wondered what it's like inside the mind of a dictator? #cyrilwong composes a very charming and satirical diary-like story narrated by an obnoxious and anonymous dictator (Well, anonymous until you've figured him out...) Warning: Citizens can be incurably tethered to the media and reliant on the local government (not that it's always a bad thing)... so reading this w Curiosity level: Devoured the book in less than an hour!

A compelling and interesting black humour prose book, cutely modelled after the rise and fall of eyebrows 👮🏻

    Creative choice of medium to critique local politics and a person in particular. no prizes for guessing who he is.

    Subtle and intelligent criticism about a deceased political leader

    Julie Koh

    A satirical fable-in-verse reminiscent of 'Hitler's Mustache' by Peter Davis, and equally biting, funny, moving, and surreal. It is probably more in line with the poet's 'Let Me Tell You Something About That Night' stories or fairy tales. As a verse-novella, it stands alone like an almost terrifying dream-sequence with an embedded narrative about the rise and fall of power and self-certainty.
