"An addictive novel of daring ingenuity; a study of sacrifice and freedom in a citizen-eating dynasty; and a timely reminder that anonymous victims of oppression are also human beings who love. A brave and impressive book" (David Mitchell, author of THE THOUSAND AUTUMNS OF JACOB DE ZOET)
"A flamboyantly grim epic of totalitarianism... this larger-than-life, two-fisted picaresque manages to be a page-turner... an ambitious book" (The Sunday Times)
"One of those books where you know you’ve found yourself in the hands of someone who can really tell a story, and is yet not naïve about the artificiality of stories. The conceit is fantastic: a narration partly told through the loud speakers of the North Korean regime." (Zadie Smith)
"A clever, wildly original novel, with an ultimately thrilling plot" (Daily Mirror)
"Adam Johnson has managed to capture the atmosphere of this hermit kingdom better than any writer I’ve read... The Orphan Master’s Son deserves a place up there with dystopian classics such as Nineteen Eighty-Four and Brave New World" (Barbara Demick, author of NOTHING TO ENVY: REAL LIVES IN NORTH KOREA Guardian)
Citizens of our beloved Democratic Republic of North Korea! Imagine the life of an orphan boy plucked from nowhere to be trained as a tunnel assassin, a kidnapper, a spy.
He has no father but the State, no sweetheart but Sun Moon, the greatest opera star who ever lived, whose face is tattooed on his chest.
Imagine he lives in our very own country, a model of exemplary Communism. A nation that is the envy of the world, especially the Americans. Where the only stories people need to hear are those blasting out of loudspeakers to the glory of our dear Leader, Kim Jong il.
Dry your eyes now, comrades! Prepare to hear the Greatest North Korean Love Story Ever Told.
THE ORPHAN MASTER'S SON is an iconoclastic work of fiction, part thriller, part coming-of-age story, part love story. Dark, playful and genre-defying, its searing depiction of one man's epic journey through the surrealist brutality of North Korea shines a fierce light on the essence of the human condition.
