Críticas:

An interesting, strange book-all the stranger...that it's nearly 40 years old and feels fresh as last Tuesday.

This book, with no belief in God, no hope of heaven, makes you feel the stuff of life as sacred. -- Charles Taylor

The Top Ten Books. "You'll fall in love with...the honest, human portrait...of a friend dying of cancer."

-- Sam Anderson

His most daring work. The book's design mirrors...a mind trying to comprehend the complexity of human loss. -- Thomas McGonigle

Generous in its characterization and emotional engagement...uncomfortably honest, wholly unpretentious autobiography. -- John Lingan

His writing is emotionally forthright, even if it is formally refracted. Excellent introduction written by Jonathan Coe. -- Linden Park

A most gifted author.--Samuel Beckett

A most gifted author. --Samuel Beckett

A most gifted author. --Samuel Beckett"

You ll fall in love. --Sam Anderson ""Top Ten Books of 2008" ""

Beautifully reprinted with an invaluable introductory essay ... The Unfortunates allows us a peculiar feeling of discovery. --Josef Braun"

You ll fall in love.--Sam Anderson ""Top Ten Books of 2008" ""

Far from some modernist stunt, the form of the book dovetails beautifully with Johnson's subject-the accidental yet persistent nature of memory....This book, with no belief in God, no hope of heaven, makes you feel the stuff of life as sacred, and our inability to hold on to it as damnation enough for anyone to be made to bear.--Charles Taylor

You'll fall in love.--Sam Anderson ""Top Ten Books of 2008" "

Biografía del autor:

B. S. Johnson (Bryan Stanley Johnson) (1933-1973) was an English experimental novelist, poet, literary critic and filmmaker. He was born into a working-class family, was evacuated from London during World War II, and left school at sixteen to work as an accountant. However, he taught himself Latin in the evenings, and with this knowledge, managed to pass the university exam for King's College London. After he graduated Johnson wrote a series of increasingly experimental and often acutely personal novels. A critically acclaimed film adaptation of the last of the novels published while he was alive, Christie Malry's Own Double-Entry was released in 2000. Increasingly depressed by his failure to succeed commercially, and beset by family problems, Johnson committed suicide.

Jonathan Coe is a journalist who writes for the Guardian and the London Review of Books. He is the author of a biography of Humphrey Bogart and three novels.

Descripción New Directions Publishing Corporation, United States, 2009. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 201 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. B.S. Johnson s lost classic has been showered with praise: New York Magazine named The Unfortunates one of their Ten Best Books of 2008, listed in The New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2008, and The Los Angeles Times declared it to be his most daring work. A legendary 1960s experiment in form, The Unfortunates is B. S. Johnson s famous book in a box, in which the chapters are presented unbound, to be read in any order the reader chooses. A sportswriter, sent to a Midlands town on a weekly assignment, finds himself confronted by ghosts from the past when he disembarks at the train station. Memories of one of his best, most trusted friends, a tragically young victim of cancer, begin to flood through his mind as he attempts to go about the routine business of reporting a soccer match. The Unfortunates is a book of passionate honesty and dark, courageous humor: a meditation on death and a celebration of friendship which also offers a remarkably frank self-portrait of its author.
