Description

“An expertly drawn narrative, well paced and above all intriguing in its portrayal of an odd, little known episode in the Second World War.” —National Post

The Globe and Mail calls The Dictator “suspenseful . . . layered and morally complex”

With a deft touch and a wonderful ability to show the humorous in the tragic, David Layton has written a novel that explores the relationship between fathers and sons, and the way in which events of the past translate down through the generations. The Dictator is at turns funny, poignant and insightful.
