Thank you Barbara Demick.
Although it is now seven years old, it didn't feel dated and I can't imagine it's lost any of it's impact from when it was first released. Demick's well-crafted narrative weaves a complex picture of a forbidden country and her detailed citations help provide some of the accuracy needed for this book to really hit home.
