Jesus' Son (excerpt) - (the old Vine on Prentiss)

(by Denis Johnson)


  1. So good. Such a great film, and I'm finally getting around to the book...

  2. It makes total sense that you dig this. I remember being introduced to this by one hell of a writing T.A. who regaled us with story upon story of Denis (who got his MFA at my alma mater): Denis at the bar (the one in downtown Iowa City referenced here). Denis having to stop by his assistant's desk to get his eyes checked (how bloodshot? is he fit to teach today?). Denis dismissing class and meeting his students outside our English Philosophy Building to sell them drugs.
