      Adam Johnson, Author, The Orphan Master's Son

      Here is a rare chance to meet one of America's most prominent novelists and to get an inside look at his prize-winning work, The Orphan Master's Son. The Pulitzer committee called The Orphan Master's Son, set in North Korea, "an exquisitely crafted novel that carries the reader on an adventuresome journey into the depths of totalitarian North Korea and into the most intimate spaces of the human heart." Johnson spent several years researching the book, his third, reading historical accounts and propaganda about the isolated country. He also read personal narratives from the few people who have defected or managed to visit North Korea under a tightly controlled state-sponsored trip. Johnson's fiction has appeared in Esquire, Harper's, Playboy, Paris Review, Granta, Tin House, The New York Times, Best American Short Stories. He is the author of Emporium, a short-story collection, and the novels Parasites Like Us, which also won a California Book Award. - See more at:
