* By the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2013 and the EFG/Sunday Times Best Short Story Award 2014

* 'An idiosyncratic and compelling voice' Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

An ATF raid, a moonshot gone wrong, a busload of female cancer victims determined to live life to the fullest - these are some of the compelling themes explored in this funny, sad, brilliantly bizarre debut collection. A lovesick teenage Cajun girl, a gay astrophysicist, a teenage sniper on Los Angeles police payroll, a post apocalyptic bulletproof-vest salesman - each seeks connection and meaning in landscapes made uncertain by the voids parents and lovers should fill.

Product Description:

This is by the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2013. "An idiosyncratic and compelling voice". (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times). An ATF raid, a moonshot gone wrong, a busload of female cancer victims determined to live life to the fullest - these are some of the compelling themes explored in this funny, sad, brilliantly bizarre debut collection. A lovesick teenage Cajun girl, a gay astrophysicist, a teenage sniper on Los Angeles police payroll, a post apocalyptic bulletproof-vest salesman - each seeks connection and meaning in landscapes made uncertain by the voids parents and lovers should fill.

Review:

"Adam Johnson's stories capture youth's torque, its weird braid of exhilaration and loneliness. Except there's nothing humdrum here. Each of Johnson's fantasies, each peculiar landscape, glows hot with imagination" ( Esquire)

"Masterful ... beautifully crafted ... achingly poignant ... cleverly funny" ( San Francisco Chronicle)

"Johnson's audacious work blows the covers off the short story and leaves the genre newly invigorated" ( Chicago Tribune)
