इस किताब में शामिल चार लेखों को आप मॉडर्न ज़माने की दंतकथाओं की तरह पढ़ सकते हैं।

ईव एंसलर : अमेरिकन नाटककार और मशहूर दि वजाइना मोनोलॉग्स की लेखक ईव ने अमेरिकन राष्ट्रपति डोनाल्ड ट्रम्प के नारंगी बालों की गुत्थी बेहतरीन तरीके से सुलझाई है।

दानिश हुसैन : हिंदुस्तानी दास्तानगो, ऐक्टर और कवि दानिश ने सिर्फ़ भारत के प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी के किस्से ही नहीं सुनाए बल्कि उसी बहाने संघ परिवार के दिनोंदिन बढ़ते अतिवादों का भी लेखा-जोखा पेश किया है।

बुरहान सॉनमेज़ : तुर्की उपन्यासकार बुरहान ने तुर्की के राष्ट्रपति तैय्यप एर्रदोगान के भटकाव भरे पूरे राजनीतिक करियर का खाका दिया है।

निनॉच्का रॉस्का : फिलीपींस की स्त्रीवादी उपन्यासकार निनॉच्का ने दुतेर्ते की पुरुषवादी सत्ता विमर्श की पोल खोली है।

इन लेखकों को ‘तटस्थ’ समझने की भूल बिल्कुल न करें। ये ऐसे विचारक, ऐसे जादुई लेखक और कारामाती कलाकार हैं जिन्हें शैतानी ताकतों, दुनिया के भविष्य और आने वाले कल को देखने की ख़ास नज़र मिली है। दुनिया का वर्तमान दर्दनाक है लेकिन भविष्य बेहद ज़रुरी। चार दमदार लेखक, चार ग्लोबल दबंग।
