RIP Denis Johnson

Amazing narration, amazing work. This a great collection of stories from a late master of the form. For fans of Denis Johnson you’ll find something familiar yet truly original.

The bad reviews on this book are extremely misleading. If you're looking to be rapt with attention, swept up in the plot, or otherwise moved by the grandiosity of this story than this novel might not be for you.

If language and it's nuances are more up your alley read on. Galchen masterfully weaves through the taxonomy of her narrators deteriorating mind on a wild goose chase for sanity.

An emotional look at the plight of losing a sense for one's own consciousness and the repercussions it might have on those around you.

This book is unforgettable.
