Close Read: Chris Power on Denis Johnson's Emergency

Explore Denis Johnson’s short story Emergency with writer and broadcaster Chris Power. Set on a chaotic night in 1973, Emergency was first published in the New Yorker and then in 1992 in Jesus’ Son. Power examines the characters – including Fuckhead the narrator – of a story that is as divisive as it is beloved. Expect an open conversation from the start, engaging for newcomers and lifelong fans alike.
