WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION 2013 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST 'You know you are in the hands of someone who can tell a story ... fantastic' ZADIE SMITH 'Excavates the very meaning of life' New York Times The award-winning and New York Times bestselling novel: a surreal, picaresque and utterly brutal life journey of a young orphan in North Korea. Pak Jun Do knows he is special. He knows he must be the son of the master of the orphanage, not some kid dumped by his parents - it was obvious from the way his father singled him out for beatings. He knows he is special when he is picked as a spy and kidnapper for his country, the glorious Democratic Republic of North Korea. He knows he must find his true love, Sun Moon, the greatest opera star who ever lived, before it's too late. He knows he's not like the other prisoners in the camp. He's going to get out soon. Definitely 'An addictive novel of daring ingenuity' DAVID MITCHELL
