Synopsis

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION 2013

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST



'You know you are in the hands of someone who can tell a story ... fantastic' ZADIE SMITH

'Excavates the very meaning of life' New York Times





Pak Jun Do knows he is special. He knows he must be the son of the master of the orphanage, not some kid dumped by his parents - it was obvious from the way his father singled him out for beatings.



He knows he is special when he is picked as a spy and kidnapper for his country, the glorious Democratic Republic of North Korea.



He knows he must find his true love, Sun Moon, the greatest opera star who ever lived, before it's too late.



He knows he's not like the other prisoners in the camp.



He's going to get out soon.
