Robert Fisk on the Saddam biography he never wrote

I loved this article. Robert Fisk discovers, via an Egyptian friend, that a florid biography of Saddam Hussein penned by Robert Fisk is selling in Cairo bookshops. The only problem: Fisk never wrote it. He hops a plane for Cairo and starts a mad goose chase trying to figure out who did. A lovely portrait of Cairene life that made me feel homesick.
