[EAN: 9780385517393], Neubuch, [PU: Nan A. Talese], Fiction|General, Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Set on China's fraught, ruggedly beautiful border with North Korea, Talarigo's tense, atmospheric second novel movingly dramatizes the human faces behind political oppression.Talarigo hypnotically weaves [the story] together against a backdrop of stunning scenery and of cruelty, creating a memorable, morally stringent tale." Publishers Weekly "Talarigo's characterization of this antihero is both sensitive and understanding. His descriptive prose is such that readers virtually see the wrinkles of the ginseng root, hear the sparrows' high-pitched call, and taste the cold, running stream. By subtly relating the struggle of plant life on the forest floor to the human struggle at the border, Talarigo offers us a novel that is ultimately a study of survival under hostile conditions." Library Journal(starred review) Praise for THE PEARL DIVER "Talarigo's prose is as evocative as a Hokusai woodcut." Los Angeles Times "At once exquisite and horrifying, a piece of delicacy forged out of pain and the struggle against numbness. . . . There is no denying the loveliness of this book." Minneapolis Star-Tribune "Luminous. . . . Everything looks magical through [Talarigo's] lens." The Baltimore Sun "One of the most honest, tender, and inventive books I've read in years. Talarigo never steps out of culture, out of voice, out of place; and yet this is a universal story, one of love, one of neglect, one of shame. . . . He can find redemption even in the narrowest corridors of the human spirit." Colum McCann, author ofDancer "[A] meditation on endurance and socially sanctioned cruelty. . . . A quiet triumph." Chicago Tribune "Utterly believable. . . . In Talarigo's hands, the leprosarium and all the humiliations that go with it take on a mythical aspect, while remaining intimate and specific. . . .The Pearl Diverdoes not feel like a first novel. There is nothing tentative, nothing lacking from this moving story." The Times-Picayune

Set at the turn of the twenty-first century in China along the Tumen River, which separates northeast China and North Korea, The Ginseng Hunter is an unforgettable portrait of life along a fragile border.A Chinese ginseng hunter lives alone in the valley and spends his days up in the mountains looking for ginseng and preparing for winter. He is scarcely aware of the larger world until shadowy figures hiding in the fields, bodies floating in the river, and rumors of thievery and murder begin to intrude on his cherished solitude. On one of his monthly trips to Yanji, where he buys supplies and visits a brothel, he meets a young North Korean prostitute. Through her vivid tales, the tragedy occurring across the river unfolds, and over the course of the year the hunter unnervingly discovers that the fates of the young woman and four others rest in his hands.Spare, intimate, and strikingly atmospheric, The Ginseng Hunter takes us into the little-understood lives of North Koreans and confirms Jeff Talarigo's immense gift for storytelling.The Ginseng Hunter is based on actual events that are happening today in North Korea, also known as the DPRK, and along the Northeast border of China, to where many North Korean refugees flee. In response to this humanitarian crisis, Liberty in North Korea, or LiNK, an international NGO, maintains programs in refugee protection and resettlement, leadership development for North Korean defec contemporary,genre fiction,literary,literature and fiction,political Literature & Fiction, Nan A.
