The Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag

by Kang Chol-hwan and Pierre Rigoulot
£10.99   paperback  Atlantic Books (2006)

The Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag by Kang Chol-hwan and Pierre Rigoulot Kang Chol-hwan is the first person to escape successfully from the gulags of North Korea and tell the story of his imprisonment. In collaboration with Pierre Rigoulot, Kang exposes the appalling truth about life in the camp: the forced labour, the public executions and the near-starvation rations that drove him to eat bugs and rats. After ten years, Kang was eventually able to escape to via China to South Korea.
 
Part horror story and part historical document, The Aquariums of Pyongyang testifies to the hardships and atrocities that continue in the world's last Stalinist state. It lays bare an ongoing and neglected chapter of modern history.
