Escape from Camp 14: One Man's Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West

by Blaine Harden - £9.99  Pan Macmillan (Pan Books) (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780330519540 | ISBN 10: 0330519549

Introducing the incredible story of Shin Dong-hyuk - the only person born in a North Korean gulag ever to escape...
 
Twenty-seven years ago, Shin Dong-hyuk was born inside Camp 14, one of five sprawling political prisons in the mountains of North Korea. Located about 55 miles north of Pyongyang, the labor camp is a 'complete control district,' a no-exit prison where the only sentence is life. No one born in Camp 14 or in any North Korean political prison camp has escaped. No one except Shin. This is his story.
 
A gripping, terrifying memoir with a searing sense of place, Escape from Camp 14 will unlock, through Shin, a dark and secret nation, taking readers to a place they have never before been allowed to go.
