The Pulitzer Prize-winning, New York Times bestselling novel of North Korea: an epic journey into the heart of the world?s most mysterious dictatorship.
?Imagine Charles Dickens paying a visit to Pyongyang, and you see the canvas on which [Adam] Johnson is painting here.?-The Washington Post
Pak Jun Do is the haunted son of a lost mother-a singer ?stolen? to Pyongyang-and an influential father who runs a work camp for orphans. Superiors in the North Korean state soon recognize the boy?s loyalty and keen instincts. Considering himself ?a humble citizen of the greatest nation in the world,? Jun Do rises in the ranks. He becomes a professional kidnapper who must navigate the shifting rules, arbitrary violence, and baffling demands of his overlords in order to stay alive. Driven to the absolute limit of what any human being could endure, he boldly takes on the treacherous role of rival to Kim Jong Il in an attempt to save the woman he loves, Sun Moon, a legendary actress ?so pure, she didn?t know what starving people looked like.?
Part breathless thriller, part story of innocence lost, part story of romantic love, The Orphan Master?s Son is also a riveting portrait of a world heretofore hidden from view: a North Korea rife with hunger, corruption, and casual cruelty but also camaraderie, stolen moments of beauty, and love.
