An author and journalist who reports for PBS’s Frontline and contributes to The Economist, Blaine Harden has worked for The Washington Post as a correspondent in Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia, and as a national correspondent for the New York Times. An international bestseller, Escape from Camp 14 is “a riveting nightmare that bears witness to the worst inhumanity, an unbearable tragedy magnified by the fact that the horror continues at this very moment without an end in sight” (Christian Science Monitor). The book illuminates the world’s most repressive totalitarian state through the shocking story of Shin Dong-hyuk, one of the few people born in a North Korean prison camp to escape and survive.
