Adam Johnson follows his Pulitzer Prize-winning The Orphan Master’s Son with a story collection, Fortune Smiles—six masterly stories in which Johnson delves deep into love and loss, natural disasters, the influence of technology, and how the political shapes the personal. In Padgett Powell’s new collection, Cries for Help, Various: Stories, the surrealistic and comical terrain of most of the forty-four stories here is grounded by a real preoccupation with longing, fear, work, loneliness, and cultural nostalgia. Kelly Link’s first story collection in a decade, Get in Trouble, showcases her ability to combine the fantastical and the mundane.
