Emporium StoriesAdam Johnson
Short-story collection by Adam Johnson. A teenage sniper gets his first glimpse of love through a Raytheon rifle scope, then has to learn to speak without bullets. We brave the unforgiving Canadian north country with a band of space scientists bent on beating the Russians to the moon. We ride a bus with terminally ill cancer patients, all women, all beautiful, who attack life with a Dionysian fervor. Yearning for connection, Johnson’s characters seek meaning in landscapes made uncertain by the voids where parents and lovers should be.
