9780060975777: Jesus' Son

Jesus' Son is a visionary chronicle of dreamers, addicts, and lost souls. These stories tell of spiralling grief and transcendence, of rock bottom and redemption, of getting lost and found and lost again. The narrator of these interlinked stories is a young, unnamed man, reeling from his addiction to heroin and alcohol, his mind at once clouded and made brilliantly lucid by these drugs. In the course of his adventures, he meets an assortment of people, who seem as alienated and confused as he; sinners, misfits, the lost, the damned, the desperate and the forgotten. Our of their bleak, seemingly random lives, Denis Johnson creates modern-day parables of a harsh and devastating beauty.

Truly extraordinary. --'Books of the Year', Scotland on Sunday

'Johnson is probably the best writer of English prose around. He's at his best in these early stories. It's all delivered with an astonishing beauty' --'My desert island books' chosen by David Flusfeder, Metro
