Read: _A Corpse in the Koryo_ !

Originally uploaded by pinkie girl.
James Church's (pseud.) new novel is not a whodunnit, but it is compelling portrait of the intricacies of surviving the labyrinth of government work in the most isolated, yet politicized Marxisit-Leninist-socialist paradise on earth. If you are curious about life in the DPRK with its eternal president (still dead), hereditary "democratic" rule, military first ideology (선군사상 / 先軍思想), land of the great Arirang (아리랑) mass gymnastics cum incredible stadium card section, then this book by a former intelligence officer is the book for you!
