Most widely held works by B. S Johnson
Christie Malry's own double-entry by B. S Johnson( Book )

49 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"B.S. Johnson's funniest and most accessible novel, reissued for the first time in 25 years with a foreword by John Lanchester Christie Malry is a simple person. Born into a family without money he realised early along in the game that the best way to come by money was to place himself next to it. So he took a job as a very junior bank clerk in a very stuffy bank. It was at the bank that Christie discocered the principles of double-entry bookkeeping, from which he evolved his Great Idea. For every offence Christy henceforth received at the hands of a society with which he was clearly out of step. a debit must be noted; after which, society would have to be paid back appropriately, so that the paper credit would accrue to Christy's account. Acerbic yet funny, this is a novel which, even as it provokes laughter, will alarm and disturb as well."

Albert Angelo is by vocation an architect and only by economic necessity working as a substitute teacher. He had thought he was, if not dedicated, at least competent. But now, on temporary assignments in schools located in the tough neighborhoods of London, Albert feels ineffectual. He is failing as a teacher and failing to fulfill himself as an architect. And then, too, he is pained by the memory of a failed love affair
The unfortunates by B. S Johnson( Book )

21 editions published between 1969 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the lost classics of the 1960s - and a legendary experiment in form - published in the U.S. for the first time. 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, is one of the key works of a novelist now undergoing an enormous revival of interest. It 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
