What You'll Get
Revered for his “sharp sense of the absurd and adrenaline-laced language,” writer Adam Johnson ranks up there with Kurt Vonnegut and George Saunders in the “as funny as they are brilliant” category of Great American Novelists. Already the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for his novel The Orphan Master’s Son, Johnson further cemented his reputation as one of the most provocative and powerful writers working in English with his latest story collection, Fortune Smiles. In six masterful stories, Johnson delves deep into love and loss, natural disasters, the influence of technology, and how the political shapes the personal. Now Johnson, who teaches creative writing at Stanford, comes to San Francisco to read from, discuss and sign his remarkable new work at The Commonwealth Club of California.
