His literary agent, Nicole Aragi, confirmed that Johnson died Wednesday of liver cancer. "Denis was one in the great writers of his generation," FSG's president and publisher, Jonathan Gala si, said in a statement Friday. "He wrote prose with the imaginative concentration and empathy from the poet he was." "Brutally honest and painfully beautiful" that's how novelist Nathan Englander described Johnson's work in 1992's Jesus' Son, a brief, unvarnished set of interwoven stories that focus on the desperate lives of drug addicts.
