In her new book Nothing to Envy – Real Lives in North Korea, Barbara Demick uncovers the secrets of the world’s most secretive country, through the stories of six North Koreans. Covering illicit love affairs, party loyalty and crippling poverty, the stories are the result of tenacious investigations and interviews in a country not connected to the internet and where there is no electricity to keep the lights on.
Barbara Demick discusses her findings with journalist and broadcaster Isabel Hilton, and Channel 4 News International Editor Lindsey Hilsum, who has reported from Korea. An audience Q&A follows.
