DARIEN, Conn. – What’s it like to be the son or daughter of a dictator?

Jay Nordlinger, a senior editor and a book fellow at the National Review, set out to answer that question when he wrote, “Children of Monsters: An Inquiry into the Sons and Daughters of Dictators,” which he will discuss at the Darien Community Association at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Nordlinger looks into the families of the worst of the worst: Stalin, Mao, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein and more. Some of the kids are down-the-line loyalists. Some even succeed their father as dictator (as in North Korea and Syria). Some have doubts. A few defect. All are rocked by prison, war, exile and the like.

Reservations are requested for this event. Books will be available for sale courtesy of Barrett Bookstore. This event is $10 per person or $5 for association members. Reservations can be made online here , by contacting the association at info@dariendca.org or by calling 203-655-9050.

The Darien Community Association is at 274 Middlesex Road, Darien.
