Exiled in Pyongyang

The daughter of Francisco Macias Nguema, the late dictator of Equatorial Guinea (pictured), detailed her unusual coming-of-age in her recently published memoir, I’m Monique, From Pyongyang. After Monique Macias’ father struck a deal with North Korea prior to his execution in the 1970s, she, along with her mother and siblings, spent a decade and a half living in the Asian nation. High tension and low relations between North Korea and the U.S. prompted her to publish her story now.
