eBook of the Week: The Orphan Master’s Son

Orphan Master's sonWinner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction – “An exquisitely crafted novel that carries the reader on an adventuresome journey into the depths of totalitarian North Korea and into the most intimate spaces of the human heart.”

“Jun Do is … a North Korean citizen with a rough past who is working as a government-sanctioned kidnapper … In a totalitarian nation of random violence and bewildering caprice—a poor, gray place that nonetheless refers to itself as “the most glorious nation on earth”—an unnatural tension exists between a citizen’s national identity and his private life. Through Jun Do’s story we realize that beneath the weight of oppression and lies beats a heart not much different from our own—one that thirsts for love, acceptance, and hope—and that realization is at the heart of this shockingly believable, immersive, and thrilling novel.” –Chris Schluep, Amazon.com
