|Author Adam Johnson|
The Orphan Master's Son is a thriller, an epic adventure story, a cultural critique, a love story, a story of hope and transformation. It is remarkable for its vibrant characters and plot, but it's also a literary book. This is a book into which you can happily lose yourself for a week, and about which you'll think for weeks afterward. Adam Johnson has written something brilliant. The Orphan Master's Son is one of those books where readers band together to share their love. I can't wait for everyone to read this book, and luckily it goes on sale tomorrow, Tuesday, January 10th.
