'An engrossing picture of a nation that remains closed to the world, aptly described as the Jurasic Park of communism' SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY 'This is a rare and precious insight into the most obscure regime on earth through the startled and observant eyes o 'An engrossing picture of a nation that remains closed to the world, aptly described as the "Jurasic Park of communism' SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY 'This is an extraordinary story: a simple, yet luminous, account of what it means to grow up in one of the world's little known and most oppressive dictatorships. This North Korean Harry Potter has the evils of tyranny to contend with and escape is the hard road to an asylum which is hardly that' Lisa Appignanesi 'This is a rare and precious insight into the most obscure regime on earth through the startled and observant eyes of a thirteen-year-old boy who not only escaped but survived to tell this harrowing yet intriguing tale. The most penetrating account of life in North Korea I have ever read' Jon Snow 'Kang recounts his life with the kind of deadpan detail that is all the more powerful for its quiet understatement ... His capacity as a storyteller turns out to be masterly ... The result is a small jewel of a book, one that moves you with compassion while educating you by stealth' Mail on Sunday 'An important and necessary read' Traveller Magazine
