Have you guys read this? What did you think of it? Been wanting to try out Denis Johnson for a bit and I heard this was his best work.
It's been a number of years since I read it, but I remember enjoying it quite a bit. The prose is sparse in a good way, and the stories go from being funny to tragic, and vice-versa, in the blink of an eye.
>Funny in parts
This is accurate. I felt like each story had one little idea or germ to it. He builds around each of these in a quaint and "well-written" way, but in the end it just felt like a series of good lil ideas or short stories. So nothing THAT new.
It's good. But who/where is this dude now? Kinda doubt we'll see much more.
