Tobias Wolff reads Denis Johnson’s “Emergency”
One of my favorite readings from The New Yorker’s fiction podcast.
Denis Johnson is a marvel. His writing, although deceptively simple, will never leave your imagination.
As for Tobias Wolff, I have always admired his seemingly effortless yet extremely engaging style of writing. He delivers this story with that same poise and brutal touch.

“It is the beginning of wisdom when you recognize that the best you can do is choose which rules you want to live by, and it’s persistent and aggravated imbecility to pretend you can live without any.”
