New Walkover Collection Title: Fortune Smiles
Fortune Smiles / Adam Johnson.
Winner of the 2015 National Book Award for fiction.
In his Wall Street Journal interview (8/15/15) Adam Johnson related, “I’ve always been interested in fiction that delivers new worlds, and building them is one of the great pleasures I take from writing.” In Fortune Smiles he does indeed offer “new” insight, along with a rich, quality reading experience. … Subtly surreal, darkly comic, both hilarious and heartbreaking, [this book] 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. 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.” –Amazon
A recipient of many esteemed fiction awards, Adam Johnson also won the Pulitzer Prize for his previous novel, The Orphan Master’s Son.Tags: national book award, New and notable, New books, Walkover Collection
