Book Review: Jesus' Son

Author: DenisJohnson
Title: Jesus’ Son: Stories
Description: A collection of short stories, mostly narrated in the first person, about men (or one man, can’t tell) who have taken so many drugs they no longer know what’s what.
Review source: It’s on the Entertainment Weekly list that I’m reading through.
Plot: No single plot, since it’s short stories.
Characters: They put one in mind of carnies.
Writing style: At least he’s succinct.
Audience: Literary fiction. Men.
Wrap-up: I made it through by limiting myself to one story at a time. 2/5*
