Summary With rights sold in fifteen territories and already a publishing phenomenon in France and South Korea, The Accusation is a deeply moving and eye-opening piece of fiction that exposes the truth of the North Korean regime. Set during the period of Kim Jong-Il's leadership, the seven stories that make up The Accusation throw light on different aspects of life in North Korea, and as a whole form a vivid and frightening portrait of what it means to live in this most bizarre and horrifying of dictatorships.
