BCT 5X5 Reading Series: Denis Johnson 

Monday, April 6 and Tuesday, April 7


Denis Johnson is frequently referred to as the greatest living American fiction writer, but he is also described as one of the most reclusive American writers. He can be found at Boise State University, where he is a visiting professor, and his work can be found at Boise Contemporary Theater and the Flying M Coffeegarage, where local actors will perform his play Psychos Never Dream.

Set in north Idaho (where Johnson lives part-time), the play follows a group of murderous, polymorphously perverse hillbillies who hump and kill their way through a comedic, incisive exploration of everything from property rights to the legacy of the Vietnam War.
