One of Saddam Hussein’s daughters is looking for a publishing house to release her father’s handwritten memoirs.

According to Al Arabiya News, Raghad Saddam Hussein is looking for an international publisher to help her with the memoirs. 

The works were apparently written while Saddam Hussein was in prison. Other books written by Hussein have been published, The Huffington Post reports. Hussein’s book “Devil’s Dance” was finished the day before the U.S. invaded Iraq, and was smuggled out of the country by Raghad.

Saddam Hussein penned four novels, with one translated into English. He ruled Iraq from 1979 until 2003, when he was deposed by American troops. He was executed by hanging in 2006.

Hussein’s daughter currently lives in Jordan, and Jordanian authorities have denied multiple requests to have her extradited back to Iraq for her alleged participation in terrorist activities.
