This is an amazing debut novel from my favorite publisher. Algonquin rarely disappoints readers of serious fiction, and this book is noteworthy for its prose and its subject matter. The insights into life in North Korea were obviously well researched and provide a chilling look at what is normal for people who have never known a different way of living. Sex trafficking is a harsh reality, and it is hoped that a heightened awareness of it will effect a change. I highly recommend this book and this very talented author.
