Praise

"[A] harrowing and deeply affecting new novel." - Michiko Kakutani 01/12/2012

"[M]omentous...[A] book that...ranges from the bottom of North Korea's social ladder to its top, with plenty of affecting, wayward and even comic supporting characters. It's the horror and absurdity of life in a totalitarian state as it might have been depicted by Balzac." - Laura Miller 01/15/2012

"[This is an] ambitious, flawed, brave novel." - Adam Johnson 12/2011

"Johnson . . . does a superb job of conjuring the almost surreal particularities of [North Korea]." - Wyatt Mason 02/06/2012
