The NYWCA Summer Book Club selection is How to Feed a Dictator: Saddam Hussein, Idi Amin, Enver Hoxha, Fidel Castro, and Pol Pot Through the Eyes of Their Cooks. The author, Witold Szabłowski, tracked down the personal chefs of dictators known for the oppression and massacre of their own citizens—Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, Uganda’s Idi Amin, Albania’s Enver Hoxha, Cuba’s Fidel Castro, and Cambodia’s Pol Pot.
The Washington Post writes, “Fascinating . . . Moving . . . Reveal[s] the complicated web of feelings (and morals) involved in cooking for a despot . . . a chilling read.” And from Community Bookstore: “Dishy, deliciously readable, and dead serious, the book provides a knife’s-edge view of life under tyranny.”
