THE BOOK BEHIND THE HIT DOCUMENTARY A glimpse of life inside the world's most secretive country, as told by Britain's best-loved travel writer. In May 2018, former Monty Python stalwart and intrepid globetrotter Michael Palin spent two weeks in the notoriously secretive Democratic People's Republic of Korea, a cut-off land without internet or phone signal, where the countryside has barely moved beyond a centuries-old peasant economy but where the cities have gleaming skyscrapers and luxurious underground train stations. His resulting documentary for Channel 5 was widely acclaimed. Now he shares his day-by-day diary of his visit, in which he describes not only what he saw - and his fleeting views of what the authorities didn't want him to see - but recounts the conversations he had with the country's inhabitants, talks candidly about his encounters with officialdom, and records his musings about a land wholly unlike any other he has ever visited - one that inspires fascination and fear in equal measure. Written with Palin's trademark warmth and wit, and illustrated with beautiful colour photographs throughout, the journal offers a rare insight into the North Korea behind the headlines. "An eye-opening look at a place that doesn't figure on most travellers' bucket lists" * Kirkus * "The Python's most dangerous journey yet. Palin journeyed into the heart of Kim Jong-un's repressive and secretive regime." * The Times, 50 Best Book for Autumn * "[Lifts] the veil on one of the last blind spots on the globe" * Irish Independent * "A fascinating proposition...[a] winning mix of genuine interest, good-humoured charm and that deceptively steely nose for humbug." * Wanderlust * "The most recent - and the most extraordinary - trip was his exploration of North Korea... in his North Korea Journal... he offers fresh insight into the secretive country, which he approached with his signature openness and curiosity." * Radio Times *
