The Disaster Tourist by Yun Ko-Eun

This darkly comedic eco-thriller is an urgent, ingenious commentary on climate change, global capitalism, the First World’s morbid interest in the areas devastated by poverty and disasters. The novel, translated from the Korean, tells the story of a remote island under the risk of oblivion. Desperate to keep the tourist business, the locals are secretly working on a plan to fabricate a catastrophe—but only a few understand the real cost of such a risky endeavor… Unputdownable!  —Ksenia
