Telling a Forgotten Story: One on One with Blaine Harden

Americans hear about North Korea a lot. Unfortunately, it’s usually from pop culture: The Daily Show, The Interview, Saturday Night Live skits. Former Washington Post correspondent Blaine Harden says those depictions often paint the totalitarian state as having a cartoon-like craziness. For years, he wanted to write a book on North Korea, the Korean War and the Kim dynasty, but Harden knew a book on those topics probably wouldn’t fly off store shelves. Then the phone rang in December 2012… See how that phone call from former North Korean fighter pilot No Kum Sok provided him with the perfect action story to animate the history of North Korea and the opportunity to tell a forgotten story.

Maryville Talks Books features interviews by noted authors.
