Definitely do not miss "George Orwell is a Friend of Mine", but each of this stories is indicative of Johnson's storytelling expertise. All stories in this collection touch on disruption and disillusion.
A set of 6 National Book Award winning stories, Fortune Smiles, was more than I expected as I'm not much of a short story reader. Each story was well told, uncomfortable, yet impacting in it's own way.
Darkly unsettling. Surreally funny, although at times I wasn't sure I was supposed to be laughing. Dark Meadows in particular left me uneasy and unnerved. Every strange situation in 6 short stories seemed a metaphor for the absurdity of North Korea in the final story, or maybe it's the other way around.
Not a particularly interesting book. Was not impressed but read it all anyway
It was a normal book and none of the stories were particularly interesting to me. It was easy to read and get through but is not memorable for me.
2015 National Book Award Winner in Fiction.
