WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FOR FICTION 2015 WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION 2013 WINNER OF THE SUNDAY TIMES EFG SHORT STORY AWARD 2014 By the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction winner of THE ORPHAN MASTER'S SON - for fans of international literary fiction, especially Hanya Yanigahara, Jonathan Franzen and Anthony Doerr. 'Unputdownable is an overused word, but at their best these stories are completely gripping.' Sunday Times 'Ironic, witty, super-intelligent' - The Times 'Terrific. Shows exactly why Johnson is rated as one of the hottest American writers of his generation' Mail on Sunday Adam Johnson takes you into the minds of characters you never thought you would meet - a former Stasi prison warden in denial of his past, a refugee from North Korea unsettled by his new freedom, a UPS driver in hurricane-torn Louisiana looking for the mother of his son. These are tales of love and loss, natural disasters, the influence of technology, and how the political shapes the personal. Tender, wry, utterly compelling, they show us humanity where you might least expect it.
