Denis Johnson, "Out on Bail"

Jack Hotel’s back in town.

(from Jesus’ Son)

Which is a good excuse to go out and get drunk and high, as is a fight with the girlfriend. Everybody, everybody in the bar at least, is only staving off death. Lucky but not really lucky.

    hey,what a coincidence!
    I am reading it right now,
    but one thing i get confused is that whether Johnson was that character of this story or not.
    And did he mean he wanna turn a new leaf by saying”I am still alive.”?
