Product description

Review

'Quite brilliant' -- Literary Review

...Illuminated not only the career of the irascible hero... but the art of fiction writing itself. -- D.J. Taylor in Spectator, November 2004

Coe's book is genuinely innovative... bring[s] relatively unknown characters convincingly to life. -- Rachel Cooke in New Statesman, November 2004

Compiled from a mass of tape-recorded conversation, letters and drafts for unfinished novels... it reads superbly. -- Ian Thomson in Evening Standard, November 2004

Marvellous... On the evidence of this work alone, it would be a grievous mistake to consign Johnson to oblivion. -- Sunday Times, 30 May 2004 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

The critically acclaimed biography of a man respected for his fierce commitment to truth and honesty, and his passionate belief in the avant-garde.
