Description
Nelson Fairchild, Jr., has a Thriving Marijuana business in California's lush redwood country -- and some serious problems. His marriage has gone to pot, and he may lose his land, cash, and crop in the divorce settlement. What's more, in need of some quick cash, Nelson had foolishly agreed to smuggle $90,000 worth of cocaine through customs for Harry Lally, Jr., a major player in a drug syndicate. Chickening out just before bringing the drugs through, he flushes the powder. Now Lally wants him dead, and two goons are hot on his trail. Desperate, terrified, and alone, for Nelson, there may be only one way out.

Denis Johnson's biggest and most complex book yet, Already Dead is "a fiercely poetic tour de force.... It's also a hell of a read" (Details).

The highly acclaimed novel from one of today's most fascinating writers, Already Dead "offers just about everything that thriller buyers look for: drugs, booze, sex, murderous violence, a soupcon of the supernatural and a large cast of enterprising psychopaths" (Time).

"Mr. Johnson writes beautifully, with energy and grace, as though his hands were on fire and his head caked in ice.... Every page boasts exhilarating flights of Mr. Johnson's prose". -- New York Observer

"What makes this book impossible to put down ... is the operatic grandeur of Johnson's prose, which is sometimes beautiful and often hypnotic". -- People
