    Epub Denis Johnson · Angels PDF à · angels download, Angels Epub Bill Houston was experimenting with his butane lighter holding it upside down and trying to keep it lit “The gas wants to go up” he explained to her “but then it has to go down before it can go up It don’t know what to do”Like so much fluid in a cheap plastic Bic our lives flow along paths eually perplexing and predictable We don’t know what to do either but to whatever depths we sink and however high we rise most of it can probably be chalked up to circumstance Wherever we end up and however we end up getting there it seems the only thing we can count on is the whole mess going BOOM and usually much too soonThat’s what this book is ultimately about or at least it was for meSpeaking as someone who hasn’t spent a single night in jail for at least eleven years it's surprising how much I found myself relating to Johnson’s shady criminal minded characters The mostly reformed Arthur Graham standing here today has come a long way

    Epub Denis Johnson · Angels PDF à · angels download, Angels EpubFirst an opening number Trying to forget your past is a futile as trying to dodge the rain drops when it goes from a drizzle to a downpour Unexpectedly the sky will just open up and you're fucked I’m not going to lie this book the first half anyway brought back an awful lot of unwanted memories for meWhat is it that protected me from turning into one of these sad sonsabitches? I grew up piss poor surrounded by a bunch of degenerates why am I not chasing the dragon or locked up or living on welfare? Why do I not have 5 kids fathered by a bunch of different baby daddies? Why was I spared?Allow me to digress for a moment I swear this will make sense later I’m not much for computer games but there is one game

    Epub Denis Johnson · Angels PDF à · angels download, Angels EpubA dark powerful and ultimately tragic tale of Jamie and Bill who after meeting on a bus start up a friendship and so begins a journey that was never going to have a happy ending Right from the early stages you get a sense of what type of people they are Jamie is trailer trash and uite vulnerable who along with her two young daughters one only being a baby may be fleeing from her partner while Bill has a confident swagger about himself but in the end is just a born loser and has lived a life in and out of prison There is so much unpleasantness to everything from the bars to the hotels drugs sexual violence and madness but it's Jamie dragging her children around the dark seedy streets that I found particularly uncomfortable As for Johnson's writing it's actually very good and has a simila
