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

Bal 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. 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

October 2009There is a sense of decay throughout Adam Johnson's stories of an unraveling Things will eventually fall apart; the center won't hold for long A teen sniper for the LAPD deals with near daily holdups and hostage situations in a juiced up Silicon Valley while getting girl advice from a bomb sniffing robot A bulletproof vest salesman loses business to the big box megastore Canadian scientists fail to invent a death ray and struggle to land a man on the moon a family prepares for an ATF raid an ex cop kills unwanted zoo animals while growing apart from his son and everyone seems powerless to save their relationships and themselves from the merciless flow of timeIt's a mixed group a few okay some really good but overall this is a nice collection and yet another lucky find from an online clearance sale Debut collection too so I'm looking forward to what Adam Johnson gives us nextSide note Some of the stories bits and pieces of the prose characters situations occasionally reminded me of Chuck Palahniuk which annoyed me greatly because it tells me one of two things either 1 as much as I dislike Palahniuk I’ve read him so much I've internalized his voice and can see him everywhere I go or 2 he was never that original in the first place Probably both Still it did interfere a bit with my attempt to enjoy this collection
