The Accusation


In 1989, a North Korean dissident writer, known to us only by the pseudonym Bandi, began to write a series of stories about life under Kim Il-sung's totalitarian regime. Smuggled out of North Korea and set for publication around the world in 2017, The Accusation provides a unique and shocking window on this most secretive of countries. Bandi's profound, deeply moving, vividly characterised stories tell of ordinary men and women facing the terrible absurdity of daily life in North Korea: a factory supervisor caught between loyalty to an old friend and loyalty to the Party; a woman struggling to feed her husband through the great famine; the staunch Party man whose actor son reveals to him the absurd theatre of their reality; the mother raising her child in a world where the all-pervasive propaganda is the very stuff of childhood nightmare. The Accusation is a heartbreaking portrayal of the realities of life in North Korea. It is also a reminder that humanity can sustain hope even in the most desperate of circumstances - and that the courage of free thought has a power far beyond those seek to suppress it.

Žaloba


Kim Ir-sen a po něm Kim Čong-il vládli lidu Severní Koreje pevnou rukou a ani na chvíli nenechávali nikoho na pochybách, že komunistická diktatura chce pro všechny jen to nejlepší. Povídky severokorejského autora známého pod přezdívkou Bandi, které vznikaly v letech 1989 až 1995 a byly následně propašovány za hranice, tuto masku strhávají. Nešťastné osudy jejich protagonistů svědčí o krutých praktikách režimu, pro nějž lidský život nic neznamená.
