Writer Suki Kim's new memoir, "Without You There is No Us: My Time With the Sons of North Korea's Elite," provides an inside view of life as a student at an exclusive North Korean university.

Kim's work details the lives of young men attending Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, a college funded and run by Western Christian missionaries. These young men, destined to become future leaders of their country, are all sons of North Korea's elite.

Kim, a Korean-American, went undercover as an English teacher at this private university. And her startling revelations are certain to anger the North Korean government.
