October 11: Adam Johnson Reads from The Orphan Master's Son

Join the New York University Creative Writing Program's Fall Reading Series as Zadie Smith introduces author Adam Johnson for a reading from his acclaimed debut novel The Orphan Master’s Son, set in North Korea. (Random House, January 2012.) The event is co-sponsored with the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.


"Mr. Johnson has written a daring and remarkable novel, a novel that not only opens a frightening window on the mysterious kingdom of North Korea, but one that also excavates the very meaning of love and sacrifice." - Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
