Event Closed

More Details

In 2013, Adam Johnson’s The Orphan Masters Son was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, with judges declaring it “an exquisitely crafted novel that carries the reader on an adventuresome journey into the depths of totalitarian North Korea and into the most intimate spaces of the human heart”. As part of our North Korea series, Johnson discusses his writing and research process behind the novel, and why it’s so important that writers continue to tell the stories of North Koreans. Moderated by Kate Whitehead.
