Trawl

Author(s): B. S. Johnson

General Fiction

In his heyday, during the 1960s and early 1970s, B. S. Johnson was one of the best-known novelists in Britain. A passionate advocate for the avant-garde in both literature and film, he became famous for his forthright views on the future of the novel and for his unique ways of putting them into practice. Reissued as standalone books for the first time in many years, these are B. S. Johnson's most famous and critically acclaimed novels. 'The future of the novel depends on people like B. S. Johnson' Anthony Burgess 'Laurence Sterne, more than anyone else, is Johnson's true literary ancestor ...Don't think that because Johnson took stylistic risks he must be unapproachable or elitist' Guardian 'B. S. Johnson is the ultimate forgotten author, born in 1933, dead at forty, beloved by critics, overlooked by the public ...[he was] at the forefront of the British avant-garde' Independent Trawl 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. 'Remarkable -- easy on the modernist trickery, but a superb mesh of autobiography and farcical sex' Guardian
