People say I am a megalomaniac. It is not true. I am an exceptional being, providence incarnate, envied by the gods, able to make a faith of his cause.

October 2011. In the dying days of the Libyan civil war, Muammar Gaddafi is hiding out in his home town of Sirte along with his closest advisors.

In this gripping imagining of the last hours of President Gaddafi, Khadra provides us with fascinating insight into the mind of one of the most complex and controversial figures of recent history.

Yasmina Khadra is the pen name of the Algerian author Mohammed Moulessehoul.

Exceptionally well-written and imagined, this is a compelling, stream-of-consciousness journey through dictator Muammar Gaddafi's last night on earth, including his hardscrabble youth and inbred narcissism (his family found him uncontrollable).
