In Escape from Camp 14, Blaine Harden tells the astonishing tale of Shin Dong-hyuk:  his birth and upbringing amid the barbarism of a North Korean prison camp; his betrayal of family; and his eventual escape and resettlement in the United States. Through the extraordinary arc of Shin’s life, Harden illuminates the North Korea that exists beyond the headlines and creates a moving testament to one man’s struggle to retrieve his own lost humanity.

Hardin provides a detailed introduction to the book for the Guardian.
