The author was a devoted member of the Communist party in a supervisory position at a distribution centre. She was imprisoned on trumped-up charges owing to the greed of her superiors. For six years she suffered in the North Korean prison system (1986-1992). Her prison memoirs, originally published in Korean in 1996, are an account of inhumane atrocities. Prisoners were regarded as sub-human - as "tailless animals".
