B S Johnson and Jonathan Coe

I just finished Jonathan Coe's biography of B S Johnson, 'Like a Fiery Elephant'. It's a remarkable book about a fascinating short life.  The last novel that was published in Johnson's lifetime, 'Christie Malry's Own Double Entry' is one of the great English novels and one of my favuourite books. I looked forward to a biography of the writer and was not disappointed, a great book about a great writer
