During Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's last days in captivity, he enjoyed the small pleasures in life, like tending a garden of weeds and turning up the volume on Mary J. Blige songs, according to a new book written about the experiences of the American guards who watched him. 

Will Bardenwerper's new book The Prisoner in His Palace: Saddam Hussein, His American Guards, and What History Leaves Unsaid, details a man who seems far-removed from the heartless dictator who's name is synonymous with pure evil.

Hussein wrote letters and even poetry for one guard's wife, and when he listened to the radio, β€œhe’d always stop tuning if he stumbled across a Mary J. Blige song," the book says, the New York Post reported. 

Blige, who supported Hillary Clinton's campaign and sang at President Obama's 2009 inauguration, called President Trump a 'racist' at the Sundance Film Festival.

The book details the experiences and relationships American guards formed while watching over the dictator during a 2006 trial.
