A story by the widely respected American author Denis Johnson. Johnson is many things: a poet, playwright, novelist and the writer of the incredible linked short story collection, Jesus’ Son, where we found “Emergency.” Published in 1992, the collection is considered one of the best works of fiction in recent years. Guest host Josh Radnor talks about getting the chance to read this story and why he loves Selected Shorts.
