Like A Fiery Elephant


Today I am the guest blogger at Paul Brazill’s website with my review of Jonathan Coe’s biography of BS Johnson:

Johnson’s classic book in a box. Pick a section at random and read.

Here’s a clip from Fat Man on a Beach, a bizarre film made in Wales by the English writer just a few weeks before he took his own life in 1973. It was shown on the Beeb a year later and was Jonathan Coe’s first introduction to BS Johnson. Little did Coe know that he would later spend 8 years researching Johnson’s life. I find this film both fascinating and amusing. If you want to know what this is all about then read the biography!
