Denis Johnson's posthumous short story collection, The Largesse of the Sea Maiden, has barely been on the shelves for a full day, and big-name celebrities have already attached themselves to the audiobook version like barnacles, with each of the five short stories claimed by a famous reader.

The cast list is as follows:
It may or may not be a coincidence that Michael Shannon is on the list; one of the prolific character actor's first roles was in Jesus' Son, the 1999 film adaptation of Johnson's 1992 short story collection of the same name.

Check out the Soundcloud page for samples of each story being read. The audiobook costs approximately $19 through most online services.
