Well Done God!: Selected Prose and Drama of B. S. Johnson

Well Done God!

Selected Prose and Drama of B. S. Johnson

B S Johnson

A selection of B. S. Johnson's prose, collected for the first time, to celebrate the 80th anniversary of his birth.

B. S. Johnson is a truly unique British writer, a cult figure whose original and experimental fiction has, since his tragically early death in 1973, been rediscovered by many subsequent generations of writers and readers. In many ways the heir to Joyce and Beckett, Johnson played with form and narrative across many genres: novels, plays, poetry and memoir.

To commemorate the eightieth anniversary of his birth, two of the foremost scholars of B. S. Johnson, Professor Philip Tew and Dr Julia Jordan, have joined forces with Jonathan Coe, author of the prize-winning biography, Like a Fiery Elephant, to offer a selection of his greatest uncollected or unavailable writing. Well Done God! includes his major prose work, Aren’t You Rather Young to be Writing Your Memoirs?, six plays and a selection of his remarkable journalism.
