B. S. Johnson Omnibus

    By

    Reissued for the first time in many years, and for the first time together, this omnibus contains B.S. Johnson's most famous and critically acclaimed novels. "Albert Angelo" 1964 was Johnson's second novel. The eponymous Albert is an architect by training but a supply teacher through economic necessity, and as his character begins to question what he wants to achieve, Johnson attempts to reproduce the dissatisfactions and disappointments we experience as an inevitable part of life. "Trawl" 1966 is Johnson's convincingly authentic and harrowing attempt to describe the human condition, as seen through the eyes of the solitary passenger on board a deep-water trawler. "House Mother Normal: A Geriatric Comedy" 1971 is a remarkable study of old age as the same events are relayed through the eyes of eight different inmates of an old people's home.
