Ask A North Korean
Defectors Talk About Their Lives Inside the World's Most Secretive Nationav Daniel Tudor, Nk News248
The weekly column Ask a North Korean, published by NK News, invites readers from around the world to pose questions to North Korean defectors. By way of these provocative interviews the North Koreans themselves provide authentic firsthand testimonies about what is really happening inside the Hermit Kingdom. North Korean contributors to this book include: Seong who came to South Korea after dropping out during his final year of his 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. This book sheds an important 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 you may think.

"North Korea regularly dominates the headlines, but rarely do outsiders hear the perspective of its people. Ask a North Korean is a welcome remedy. Fascinating and insightful." --Bryan Harris, Financial Times correspondent in Seoul "Ask A North Korean gives valuable insight into how former North Koreans see themselves, their changing country and its place in the world." --Andray Abrahamian, Chosun Exchange "With North Korea once more in the news, this book will enable readers to empathize with a people often forgotten as a result of the bellicosity of their government." --Publishers Weekly
