“riveting…a harrowing tale of endurance and courage”—CNN
ESCAPE FROM CAMP 14 is the shocking story of Shin Dong-hyuk, the only known person born in a North Korean no-exit camp to have escaped and survived. An international #1 and New York Times bestseller, the book was named a “must read” by the LA Times and “one of the 21 books that will matter in 2012” by Foreign Policy. Don’t miss hearing from the award-winning Frontline and Washington Post reporter who brought forth this tale of endurance, courage and survival and, with it, unlocked the world’s most repressive, totalitarian state.
Blaine Harden is an author and journalist who reports for PBS Frontline and contributes to The Economist. He worked for The Washington Post as a correspondent in Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia, as well as in New York and Seattle. He was also a national correspondent for The New York Times and writer for the Times Magazine.
