Brandon Jones will read from and sign his May Indie Next pick, All Woman in Springtime.
This moving, heartbreaking, yet hopeful novel is set in the cruel world of the North Korean sex trade. Take a peek behind the iron curtain at North Korea's forced-labor camps and communist regime. Gi and Il-sun, sheltered orphan teens, work long hours in a factory, all their efforts for the benefit of their "Great Leader," Kim Jong-Il. When Il-sun gets involved with the wrong man, and Gi is attacked by her foreman at the factory, the tiny amount of control they once held over their lives is ripped from them. This important story exposes startling acts of human cruelty and uncovers the amazing resiliency of the human being, mind and body.
