Denis Johnson

Write naked. That means to write what you would never say.
Write in blood. As if ink is so precious you can’t waste it.
Write in exile, as if you are never going to get home again, and you have to call back every detail.

Denis Johnson died. Jesus' Son is one of my favorite books ever. One of the reasons I started writing. Alison Maclean's adaptation is one of my favorite movies as well. Huge influence on my stuff.

I like this quote from a New Yorker piece on him.

Sad news.
