Beautifully written but

It’s dark and disconcerting. It reads very much as a stream of consciousness instead of a coherent narrative. That being said it is extremely well written. Denis Johnson had a beautiful way with words and Will Patton is good. He often sounds like he’s losing his voice, but that part of his charm, I guess. There are very few redeemable elements about the characters in this book.

Exquisite in content and composition

I have not been more moved by piece of literature in the last 30 years as I am with Denis Johnson's Jesus' Son. I am compelled to find everything he has ever written and devour it, most likely more than one read.
