From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of the The Orphan Master's Son comes a major short-story collection for readers of Junot Díaz and George Saunders. In post-Katrina Louisiana, a young man and his new girlfriend search for the mother of his son. In Palo Alto, a programmer whose wife has a rare disease finds solace in a digital simulacrum of the president. In contemporary Berlin, a former Stasi agent ponders his past. And in the stunning title story, a woman with cancer rages against the idea of her family without her. Hugely inventive and endlessly energetic,Interesting Facts is a funny, heart-wrenching, surprising collection that shows Johnson writing at the top of his form.
