Описание: Pak Jun Do knows he is special. He knows he must be the son of the master of the orphanage, not some kid dumped by his parents - it was obvious from the way his father singled him out for beatings. He knows he is special when he is picked as a spy and kidnapper for his country, the glorious Democratic Republic of North Korea.

NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER - WINNER OF THE STORY PRIZE -"LOS ANGELES TIMES "BOOK PRIZE FINALIST -A "NEW YORK TIMES" NOTABLE BOOK -NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY "SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, USA TODAY, "AND "MIAMI HERALD "- NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY "The Washington Post "NPR "Marie Claire St. Louis Post-Dispatch BuzzFeed The Daily Beast Los Angeles Magazine The Independent BookPage Kirkus Reviews"
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for his acclaimed novel about North Korea, "The Orphan Master s Son, " Adam Johnson is one of America s most provocative and powerful authors. Critics have compared him to Kurt Vonnegut, David Mitchell, and George Saunders, but Johnson s new book will only further his reputation as one of our most original writers. Subtly surreal, darkly comic, both hilarious and heartbreaking, "Fortune Smiles" is a major collection of stories that gives voice to the perspectives we don t often hear, while offering something rare in fiction: a new way of looking at the world.
In six masterly stories, Johnson delves deep into love and loss, natural disasters, the influence of technology, and how the political shapes the personal. Nirvana, which won the prestigious "Sunday Times" short story prize, portrays a programmer whose wife has a rare disease finding solace in a digital simulacrum of the president of the United States. In Hurricanes Anonymous first included in the "Best American Short Stories" anthology 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.
Unnerving, riveting, and written with a timeless quality, these stories confirm Johnson as one of America s greatest writers and an indispensable guide to our new century.

"NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER
"A daring and remarkable novel."--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times "
Pak Jun Do is the haunted son of a lost mother--a singer "stolen" to Pyongyang--and an influential father who runs a work camp for orphans. Superiors in the state soon recognize the boy's loyalty and keen instincts. Considering himself "a humble citizen of the greatest nation in the world," Jun Do rises in the ranks. He becomes a professional kidnapper who must navigate the shifting rules, arbitrary violence, and baffling demands of his Korean overlords in order to stay alive. Driven to the absolute limit of what any human being could endure, he boldly takes on the treacherous role of rival to Kim Jong Il in an attempt to save the woman he loves, Sun Moon, a legendary actress "so pure, she didn't know what starving people looked like."
In this epic, critically acclaimed tour de force, Adam Johnson provides a riveting portrait of a world rife with hunger, corruption, and casual cruelty but also camaraderie, stolen moments of beauty, and love.
"Gripping . . . Deftly blending adventure, surreal comedy and "Casablanca"-style romance, the novel takes readers on a jolting ride through an Orwellian landscape of dubious identity and dangerous doublespeak."--"San Jose Mercury News"
" "
"This is a novel worth getting excited about. . . . Adam Johnson has taken the papier-mache creation that is North Korea and turned it into a real and riveting place that readers will find unforgettable."--"The Washington Post"
" "
" A] brilliant and timely novel."--"The Wall Street Journal"
"Remarkable and heartbreaking . . . To the] very short list of exceptional novels that also serve a humanitarian purpose "The Orphan Master's Son" must now be added."--"The New Republic"
" "
"A triumph of imagination . . . Grade: ] A."--"Entertainment Weekly"

"A spellbinding saga of subverted identity and an irrepressible love."--"Vogue"

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE
An epic novel and a thrilling literary discovery, "The Orphan Master's Son" follows a young man's journey through the icy waters, dark tunnels, and eerie spy chambers of the world's most mysterious dictatorship, North Korea.
NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FINALIST - LONGLISTED FOR THE AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION'S ANDREW CARNEGIE MEDAL - WINNER OF THE CALIFORNIA BOOK AWARD FOR FICTION - "NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY
"The New Yorker - The Washington Post - "Stephen King, "Entertainment Weekly - The Wall Street Journal - Los Angeles Times - San Francisco Chronicle - Financial Times - Newsweek"/The Daily Beast" - The Plain Dealer - St. Louis Post-Dispatch - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel -" Scott Turow, "The Millions - "Slate - Salon - "BookPage - "Shelf Awareness
"The single best work of fiction published this year] . . . The book's cunning, flair and pathos are testaments to the still-formidable power of the written word."--"The Wall Street Journal"
Pak Jun Do is the haunted son of a lost mother--a singer "stolen" to Pyongyang--and an influential father who runs Long Tomorrows, a work camp for orphans. There the boy is given his first taste of power, picking which orphans eat first and which will be lent out for manual labor. Recognized for his loyalty and keen instincts, Jun Do comes to the attention of superiors in the state, rises in the ranks, and starts on a road from which there will be no return.
Considering himself "a humble citizen of the greatest nation in the world," Jun Do becomes a professional kidnapper who must navigate the shifting rules, arbitrary violence, and baffling demands of his Korean overlords in order to stay alive. Driven to the absolute limit of what any human being could endure, he boldly takes on the treacherous role of rival to Kim Jong Il in an attempt to save the woman he loves, Sun Moon, a legendary actress "so pure, she didn't know what starving people looked like."
Part breathless thriller, part story of innocence lost, part story of romantic love, "The Orphan Master's Son" is also a riveting portrait of a world heretofore hidden from view: a North Korea rife with hunger, corruption, and casual cruelty but also camaraderie, stolen moments of beauty, and love. A towering literary achievement, "The Orphan Master's Son" ushers Adam Johnson into the small group of today's greatest writers.

Описание: The "remarkable" ("The New Yorker") debut story collection by the author of "The Orphan Master's Son"(winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize) and the story collection" Fortune Smile"s (winner of the 2015 National Book Award)
An ATF raid, a moonshot gone wrong, a busload of female cancer victims determined to live life to the fullest these are the compelling terrains Adam Johnson explores in his electrifying debut collection. A lovesick teenage Cajun girl, a gay Canadian astrophysicist, a teenage sniper on the LAPD payroll, a post-apocalyptic bulletproof-vest salesman each seeks connection and meaning in landscapes made uncertain by the voids that parents and lovers should fill. With imaginative grace and verbal acuity, Johnson is satirical without being cold, clever without being cloying, and heartbreaking without being sentimental. He shreds the veneer of our media-saturated, self-help society, revealing the lonely isolation that binds us all together."

Описание: The debut novel by the author of "The Orphan Master's Son"(winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize) and the story collection "Fortune Smiles "(winner of the 2015 National Book Award)
Hailed as "remarkable" by the "New Yorker," "Emporium" earned Adam Johnson comparisons to Kurt Vonnegut and T.C. Boyle. In his acclaimed first novel, "Parasites Like Us," Johnson takes us on an enthralling journey through memory, time, and the cost of mankind's quest for its own past.

Anthropologist Hank Hannah has just illegally exhumed an ancient American burial site and winds up in jail. But the law will soon be the least of his worries. For, buried beside the bones, a timeless menace awaits that will set the modern world back twelve thousand years and send Hannah on a quest to save that which is dearest to him. A brilliantly evocative apocalyptic adventure told with Adam Johnson's distinctive dark humor, "Parasites Like Us" is a thrilling tale of mankind on the brink of extinction."
