A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering DEATH TO AMERICA!

Via Gawker. In the surest sign yet that if the memoir market isn't yet flooded, it soon will be, comes the news that Osama bin Laden - like every lame - is writing his own version of Mein Kampf from his undisclosed location, with the help of a "young man with a Middle Eastern background who will later translate the text into English," who we'll call Ayman al Mark Salter. I sort of can't wait to see who blurbs this thing. Or how they plan to pull off a book tour. Anyway, one more hateful effing thing to look forward to being birthed into the world, though I'm sure a whole circle of NYC-based asshats will continue to insist that Emily Gould is the worst thing that ever happened to America.

Yet it remains to be seen whether he will, a few years after publication, produce an updated version with corrections and a lengthy discussion of irony.
