         M.K. Lords interviews Michael Malice on his new book Dear Reader: The Unauthorized Autobiography of Kim Jong Il

This interview first appeared at Bitcoin Not Bombs.

Michael Malice’s book Dear Reader: The Unauthorized Autobiography of Kim Jong Il is a darkly humorous peek into the mind of one of the most brutal dictators in recent history. Weaving North Korean propaganda into a new literary genre–the unauthorized autobiography–Malice has created a work that forces you to laugh when you shouldn’t and climaxes numerous times with fantastical stories of Jong Il’s heroism alongside his murderous sociopathy. The phrase “laughing to keep from crying” rings ominously true while reading it.

Malice, also a celebrity ghostwriter of seven books, sat down with me to discuss his research, propaganda, black markets, and Bitcoin. You can purchase Dear Reader at kimjongilbook.com. He even takes bitcoin!

It was a fascinating discussion and he even alludes to a surprise for fans of bitcoin and Bitcoin Not Bombs. Check it out in the video below.
