Dr Bird’s Advice for Sad Poets

Jesus' Son

Jesus' Son - Denis Johnson a collection of stories that often end too soon. I was actually afraid that the final story would provide no closure to the entire text and was happy to be wrong. there aren't many stories here that can stand on their own (even Emergency, one of the longest, feels incomplete).

By the end, I'm not sure if the comment about the narrator has to do with addiction or becoming a better person or simply surviving when you know you are a fuck up.
