Ordinary Lives in North Korea

Email a Friend

Award-winning journalist Barbara Demick examines what life is like under the most repressive totalitarian regime today—North Korea.

Her book Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea follows the lives of six North Koreans over fifteen years—through the death of Kim Il-sung, the unchallenged rise to power of his son Kim Jong-il, and a devastating famine that killed one-fifth of the population.
