Short. Easy reading, but there is a lot there. Distressing & inspiring.

Well written and compelling if just a bit bleak.

Note to self: David Foster Wallace praised Angels, though dumped on his subsequent works ...except Jesus's Son, which has a cult following

Collection of short stories around the same anti-hero, drug addict character. Surprisingly touching and gentle. Highly recommended.
