The National Book Awardwinning story collection from the author of The Orphan Masters Son offers something rare in fiction: a new way of looking at the world.
MASTERFUL.The Washington Post     ENTRANCING.O: The Oprah Magazine     PERCEPTIVE AND BRAVE.The New York Times
Throughout these six stories, Pulitzer Prize winner Adam Johnson delves deep into love and loss, natural disasters, the influence of technology, and how the political shapes the personal, giving voice to the perspectives we dont often hear.
In Nirvana, a programmer whose wife has a rare disease finds solace in a digital simulacrum of the president of the United States. In Hurricanes Anonymous, a young man searches for the mother of his son in a Louisiana devastated by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. George Orwell Was a Friend of Mine follows a former warden of a Stasi prison in East Germany who vehemently denies his past, even as pieces of it are delivered in packages to his door. And in the unforgettable title story, Johnson returns to his signature subject, North Korea, depicting two defectors from Pyongyang who are trying to adapt to their new lives in Seoul, while one cannot forget the woman he left behind.

Heartbreaking. ( )
  RachelGMB | Dec 27, 2023 |
This story collection was mind-blowing. What I loved most about it is how deep Johnson was willing to go to give the "other" a voice. Entertaining. Disturbing. Delightful. Raw. Empowering. Brilliant.

Absolutely give this one a read. ( )

Excellent.
Couple of the dying wife stories weren't the best, though one had a great ending and the other brilliant concept. Another story most uncomfortable subject possible, but still very good. Two, three or so fairly awesome. ( )
  Mcdede | Jul 19, 2023 |
very different, and each story is unique ( )
