Strange: Where and How People Live Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick

North Korean children are taught to sing that "We have nothing to envy in the world" according to Demick. In this book 6 defectors from the closed city of Chongjin (out of more than 100 from all of N. Korea whom she interviewed) describe the lives they left, and provide a rare portrait of life in the DPRK. Copies to check out are available at the Lebanon Reference desk.
