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 cements his reputation as one of the most provocative and powerful writers working in English with his new short 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 read from and discuss his remarkable new work at the world-famous Kepler’s Books.
