Description:

A gift "book in a box" by one of Britain's greatest modern writers. One of the lost classics of the 1960s, and a legendary 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. It is one of the key works of a novelist now undergoing an enormous revival of interest. A sportswriter, sent to a small 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.
