JP Floru "The Sun Tyrant" Reading & Book Signing June 6h at 6 pm
East End Books Ptown welcomes London based Author JP Floru for a Reading & Book Signing from his new book "The Sun Tyrant."
When, in the spring of 2016, Londoner JP Floru tagged along with three friends running the Pyongyang Marathon, he discovered a place second only to the Moon in other-worldliness. During their nine-day trip they were shown by two minders what the regime wanted them to see. The group was astounded when witnessing people bowing before their leaders' statues, being told not to take photos of the leader's feet, and hearing the hushed reverence with which people recite the history invented by the regime to keep itself in power.
Shocking and scary, and combining the diary he kept during his North Korea visit with extensive research about the idiosyncrasies of that famously enigmatic country, The Sun Tyrant shows what happens when a population is reduced to near-slavery in the twenty-first century.
