Twenty-five Years After Son Jesus, a bewitching new collection of short stories on mortality and transcendence, from the winning National Book Award and twice the Pulitzer Prize finalist Denis Johnson’s award for the wide-openness of the daughter of the sea is Denis Johnson’s awaited new collection story.Written in the luminous prose that makes him one of the most beloved and important writers of his generation, this collection finds Johnson in the new territories, contemplating the ghosts of the past and the elusive and unexpected way the mysteries of asserting the universe themselves.Finished shortly before Johnson’s death, this collection is the last word of an author whose work will live for many years to come.Praise for the broads of the daughter of the sea “these ranks of four stories with Johnson’s best work, but the title story, a catalogue of moments of the singular linked by a man who tells us that he is going through life as if it were a masquerade, ranks with the best fiction script published by no American writer in this century.”–New York Magazine” most of these stories are wonderful and two of them– the first and last–are out of the world.I’m not saying this out of respect for the recently deceased, but out of fear.When Johnson writes to recklessly all his strength, sorrows and blasted barriers intrigues, discover these strange places where, as one of his narrators here says,”the mystery winks at you.»The widenesses of the young girl of the sea contains the type of work any writer would like to go on: soft, deep and singular.It affirms a promise of literature to believers, the gift of the eternal voice.”–Maureen Corrigan on Fresh Air, NPR” the book in front of us today is one that many people have waited for-as if outdoors, in the acid rain–long timeThis is the sequel to Jesus Son, perhaps America’s most influential and beloved short stories of the last three decades.The generosity of the young girl’s sea resumes, to a large extent, where the son Jesus left behind.[with] prose
