Jesus Son

Jesus’ Son (1993)

By Denis Johnson

I’ve read a few of Johnson’s books, but Jesus’ Son is the best. ‘Angels’ is pretty good too, deals with the same subset of U.S. society, that lower class, struggling to get by group. Jesus’ Son showcases the poetic excellence of Johnson, with a strong narrative drive and scenes that were begging for a film adaptation (which came a few years later).
