's review

really liked it
bookshelves: short-stories

A poetic, disorienting book of short fiction about semi-criminals, heroin addicts and idlers squandering their lives on the fringes of urban northern Idaho.

The narrator is a study in contrasts: irresponsible, irrational . . . and yet gifted with moments of almost mystical clarity.

Rae Meadows Nice review! I love this book. Curious about the new posthumous story book, which supposedly is a continuation of Jesus' Son.
