News and Notes
In Jesus' Son, Denis Johnson offers an interconnected series of ten stories that will make you anxious and strung-out and sleepy. Your heavily medicated host, Fuck Head, carries his troubles from a rain-slicked freeway overpass to the rehab ward at Seattle General. "Car Crash While Hitch Hiking" has my vote for the best short-story title ever. Make sure you read this book before the movie comes out.
