every so often a story a story considered 'high' fiction skirts the boundaries of horror, Denis Johnson’s emergency is one of these.  it ends slowly but there's plenty that made me wince or grimace and maybe some people want to try something a little different. 

it was read by the new yorker this month.  they like longer commentaries, if that doesn't interest you you can skip to 4:40 and get right to the story.
