The Narrator of 'Out on Bail' in Jesus's Son says...

'And with each step my heart broke for the person I would never find, the person who'd love me. And then I would remember I had a wife at home who loved me, or later that my wife had left me and I was terrified, or again later that I had a beautiful alcoholic girlfriend who would make me happy forever. But every time I entered the place there were veiled faces promising everything and then clarifying quickly into the dull, the usual, looking up at me and making the same mistake.'

-The Narrator ('Out on Bail', Jesus's Son, Denis Johnson, 1992)
