Overview

Povestea lui Jun Do by Adam Johnson

Pak Jun Do are un tata autoritar, director al unui orfelinat in Coreea de Nord. Pe masura ce creste printre orfanii nevoiti sa munceasca pentru supravietuire, Jun Do isi arata loialitatea fata de conducatorii poporului si ascutimea instinctelor. Urca in ierarhie; devine soldat, apoi un soi de rapitor profesionist, specializat in disparitia japonezilor de pe plaje; inclinatia spre limbi straine il propulseaza spre meseria de transmisionist, cu misiunea de a intercepta mesajele americanilor. In cele din urma, tanarul Jun Do ajunge pe taramul detestat, America, cu o misiune de care atarna viitorul sau: va urma fie un drum luminos, alaturi de elita maretului stat, fie disparitia intr-o mina din care nimeni nu s-a mai intors.
