The Book Report: Adam Johnson

Cal Tabuena-Frolli
Author Adam Johnson

The Book Report is a series where we talk to local authors about the books they love. Today we hear from Adam Johnson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer living in San Francisco, who is discussing Marlon James' A Brief History of Seven Killings. Johnson's latest collection of stories, Fortune Smileswas released August 18th. 

JOHNSON: I do believe that readers instantly care about characters that are trapped. Who are in some circumstance that are beyond their control.

Hannah Kingsley-Ma is a reporter and producer living in San Francisco.
