Author JP Floru travelled to North Korea in the spring of 2016. He had not planned to write a book about it, but within days he became mesmerised by the sheer bizarreness of what he witnessed. Based on his travel log and extensive research, JP Floru has written a witty and incisive eyewitness account of what a country subjected to absolute state control looks like in the twenty-first century.

JP Floru trained as a solicitor in the City, ran a business, and worked for the Adam Smith Institute and in Parliament for Steve Baker MP. In 2009, he stood as a candidate for the European elections, and in 2015, he stood as a parliamentary candidate for Bermondsey and Old Southwark. He is a councillor in the City of Westminster and lists ‘fighting the nanny state’ as one of his hobbies.
