Beschreibung

"In his new book, Ask a North Korean, Daniel Tudor—a former Economist journalist and current Korean beer entrepreneur— wants people to understand the true lives of everyday North Koreans. Using translated essays written by defectors, the book covers topics from politics to pornography." — The Boston Globe Understanding North Korean Through the Eyes of Defectors. The weekly column Ask A North Korean, published by NK News, invites readers from around the world to pose questions to North Korean defectors. Adapted from the long-running column, these fascinating interviews provide authentic firsthand testimonies about life in North Korea and what is really happening inside the "Hermit Kingdom." North Korean contributors to this book include:

  • "Seong" who went to South Korea after dropping out during his final year of university. He is now training to be an elementary school teacher.
  • "Kang" who left North Korea in 2005. He now lives in London, England.
  • "Cheol" who was from South Hamgyeong in North Korea and is now a second-year university student in Seoul.
  • "Park" worked and studied in Pyongyang before defecting to the U.S. in 2011. He is now studying at a U.S. college.
Ask A North Korean sheds critical light on all aspects of North Korean politics and society and shows that, even in the world's most authoritarian regime, life goes on in ways that are very different from what outsiders may think.
