Reviews

Once Johnson gets his hooks into you it takes about two sentences . . . p retty much impossible to stop reading. David Gates, "The New York Times Book Review An amazingly talented writer . . . We can hear Twain in his biting irony, Whitman in his erotic excess, not a little of Dashiell Hammett too in the hard sentences he throws back at his gouged, wounded world. Vince Passaro, "Newsday" "Denis Johnson has delivered his masterpiece. Chris Offutt "The God I want to believe in has a voice and a sense of humor like Denis Johnson's." Jonathan Franzen "Prose of amazing power and stylishness." Philip Roth Once Johnson gets his hooks into you- it takes about two sentences it's . . . pretty much impossible to stop reading.
