Harden tells the remarkable story of Shin Dong-hyuk, and through the lens of his life unlocks the secrets of the world’s most repressive totalitarian state. This revised edition contains a new foreword that addresses recent changes to Shin’s story, providing a framework for discussing unreliable narration, the effects of trauma, and the challenges of reporting.

“The story of Shin’s awakening, escape, and new beginning is a riveting, remarkable book that should be required reading in every high school or college civics class.” —The Seattle Times

“This gripping book should raise awareness of the brutality that underscores this strange land. Without Interrupting the narrative, Harden skillfully weaves in details of North Korea’s history, politics, and society, providing context for Shin’s plight.” —The Associated Press

“Harden’s book, besides being a ripping story, unsparingly told, carries a freight of intelligence about this black hole of a country.” —The New York Times

“A searing account of one man’s incarceration and personal awakening in North Korea’s highest-security prison.” —The Wall Street Journal
