Britain’s one-man literary avant-garde

—Jonathan Coe

Like his admirer Samuel Beckett, Johnson locates his voices among conditions of such deprivation that even the most miserable memories are gilded by comparison: this paradox fuels equal parts of comedy and pathos. Never sentimental, at once corrosive and elegiac, House Mother Normal is a remarkable achievement.

The New York Times Book Review

The future of the novel depends on people like B. S. Johnson.

—Anthony Burgess

A most gifted writer.
