The Orphan Master's Son a 75 Books Challenge for 2020 (agost 2020)


Wow, what a ride. A gripping book that is arresting and discomforting, but also funny at times. Kafkasesque in its depiction of North Korea, but more realistically horrific and bleak. Awful at times, but beautifully written and realized, with gleaming scattered splinters of redemption.

This book was stranger than Murakami and Saunders put together. North Korea seems truly weird.

This story collection was mind-blowing. What I loved most about it is how deep Johnson was willing to go to give the "other" a voice. Entertaining. Disturbing. Delightful. Raw. Empowering. Brilliant.

Absolutely give this one a read.
