The Accusation: Forbidden Stories from Inside North Korea by Bandi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I bought The Accusation for the same reason I bought The Aquariums of Pyongyang and Nothing to Envy: I want to know what life is like in North Korea. I did not expect that Bandi's stories would also be great literature, but great literature they are. These seven stories shine a light onto life in North Korea, but they are also incredibly well-crafted, and remind me of the power that literature has to illuminate grave wrongs, and, ideally, to change the world.
