"If you can write, that's great. If you can tell a story, that's even greater. But if you can work a resilient premise into both, you're worth digging to find."

Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea by Barbara Demick


Vastly compelling, and haunting. Remarkable testimonies and incredible account of not only the loss of 'songbun' among North Korean citizens, but for the country in whole. Shed much light on my understanding the fundamentals behind Confucius. Insightful, lucidly clear, and a jarring must read work.
