REVIEW Ü Emporium SUMMARY ☆ DDTUST-UDA.RU ☆ Adam Johnson SUMMARY Emporium Rbal 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 togeth I had a wonderful literary experience attending the Orcas Island Lit Festival last weekend Adam Johnson was one of the talented authors I had a chance to hear interviewed I have read The Orphan Master s Son and Fortune Smiles so I purchased Emporium for the signing and to read and enjoy his early work One of the best features of the collection was the variety which kept my interest and showed the range of writing ability Johnson has to offer At the festival he told a story of his early life going to the zoo with his father who had a night job there One of the stories in the book told this story in a different way and it was my favorite of the collection The voice of Johnson s storytelling ability came through loud and clear The Burning The Haunting of Grey Hills different way and it was my favorite of the collection The voice of Johnson s storytelling ability came through loud and clear

REVIEW Ü Emporium SUMMARY ☆ DDTUST-UDA.RU ☆ Adam Johnson SUMMARY Emporium 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 Canad Man can Adam Johnson write I have not yet read The Orphan Master s Son for which he won the Pulitzer though I plan to In the stories of this book Johnson creates worlds that are off kilter some downright bizarre and his prose zings barely containable on the page Johnson s creative gifts are on full display which at times I will admit I was resistant to I found myself wary of the anti realism not that he doesn t do it beautifully Having been thoroughly wowed by his writing I will also say that I wasn t much moved by this book Most of the stories have a heavy male vibe to them not that there s anything wrong with that but maybe on an emotional level I felt a distance There is a strong fatherson theme throughout The three stories I found the most fulfilling The Jughead of Berlin the one female protagonistYour Own Backyard and the final story The Eighth Sea Definitely recommended
