Picks and Pans Review: The Incognito Lounge

UPDATED 07/12/1982 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/12/1982 at 01:00 AM EDT

by Denis Johnson

Johnson, 33, lives on Cape Cod. He writes a rock 'n' roll kind of poetry, casual, loose-limbed and full of allusions to sex and self-discovery. If his control lapses at times—as in the rambling The Confession of St. Jim-Ralph—Johnson's words crackle with energy and currency. (Random House, $10.50; paper, $5.95)
