Daniel Kalder reviews Qaddafi's other book, 1993's Escape to Hell, a collection of short stories and essays:
In the title story a truly unhinged free-form eruption of useless words Gaddafi declares that it was an “Arab prince”, not Columbus, who discovered America. The rest is incoherent blather. In Death, he tackles the pressing question: is death a man, and thus to be fought, or a woman to whose tender embrace we must surrender? I won’t ruin the ending for you.
