The House of Possibility
Growing up amid the extraordinary oppression of North Korea in the 1990s, 10 year-old Cho Jun-su finds his destiny shaped by the appearance of a mysterious book. Discarded by a foreign tourist in a Wonsan hotel room, the book contains the rules of a game that will alter Jun-su’s life for both good and bad. It will lead to love, success, betrayal, prison, the pinnacle of the North Korean elite, and an unexpected kind of redemption.
Drawn from extensive research, the testimony of North Korean escapees, and personal experience of North Korea, this is an uplifting novel about the power of empathy and the imagination.
