Denis Johnson: Two More Audio Pieces (Readings + Conversation)

Two more Denis Johnson audio pieces have come to my attention.

1. The first, readings from The Incognito Lounge, Jesus’ Son, and more, was generously introduced to me by the artist behind the website, Horse of Bone. It is an hour long reading well worth listening to. The audio file can be found by following this link:

2. The second, I found simply by searching via Yahoo. It is an hour and twenty minute reading/conversation with Denis Johnson. The reading is a long excerpt from Johnson’s magnum opus, “Tree of Smoke,” read by Johnson himself. This is followed by a conversation between Johnson and executive editor and founder of Salon.com magazine, Gary Kamiya. The conversation, in particular, is insightful as they discuss the craft of writing, the success of Jesus’ Son, influences and much more.
The audio file can be found here:

Thank you and enjoy.

    Jamie,
    In the spirit of synchronicity we both found the second link on the same day – I was just going to send it to you. Thanks for the kind comment and the link-back! Have a wonderful day. M :)

    Thank you again, too, for the initial spur into action that set this in motion. The piece you provided and the reading/conversation are both great treasures. Keep an ear to the ground and keep in touch. J.
