Adam Johnson - Fortune Smiles: Stories

Thursday, September 10, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Winner of the Pulitzer and many other prizes for The Orphan Master’s Son, his second novel, Johnson teaches writing at Stanford and is also an accomplished writer of shorter fiction. The six stories of his second collection roam the world, ferreting out narratives of unexpected challenges. Two North Koreans struggle to understand how to live free lives in Seoul. A former Stasi agent compulsively denies his past even as evidence of his lies keeps turning up. A dying woman rages against the family that will survive her. This is powerful work, at once dark and illuminating.
