    If Christopher Hitchens is wrong about the non-existence of a soul, he and Vaclav Havel must be giving Kim Jong Il a drubbing in whatever forum the afterlife offers political brawlers. While we’d expect Havel and Hitchens to eventually win a war of words, perhaps, in the long stretches of eternity, the three can find common ground by trading essays for peer review. Like Havel and Hitchens, Kim Jong Il had a literary ouevre too.

    Both GalleyCat and the BBC today called attention to some of Kim Jong Il’s film criticism, but no one’s yet released a more comprehensive picture of the dear leader as dear author.

    But! You no longer have to wait! We used the Vook platform to put together a collection of 6 of Kim’s essays and his official state biography.

    It’s a stylized eBook spin through Kim’s penetrating insights into the Juche, finding harmony with the working class and struggling against the forces of capitalist imperialism; as well as some occasional pieces of film and literary criticism.

    You might have thought the looming shadow of Kim’s threat was confined to North Korea and now extinct — but, with this special ebook, the long hand of potentially assigned, fairly impenetrable idelogical reading is reaching out for you and/or your school-age relatives.
